THE WAY OF THE BODHISATTVA WITH LAMA TENZIN
Saturday, March 7, 2020 – April 11, 2020 at 2pm
(On Saturday afternoons at 2pm for 6 sessions)
The Bodhicaryavatara, which translates in English to “A Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life,” is an ancient text composed by Shantideva, renowned Buddhist monk and scholar who lived at the Nalanda Monastic University in India. The Bodhicaryavatara presents methods to harmonize one’s life with the Bodhisattva ideal and inspires the practitioner to cultivate the perfections of the Bodhisattva: generosity, ethics, patience, strenuous endeavour, meditative concentration, and wisdom. All welcome. By donation.  Lama Tenzin will resume the Saturday afternoon teachings on the Bodhicaryavatara on Saturday, March 7, 2020.  This will be a six-session teaching taking place every consecutive Saturday from 2 pm to 4 pm.
