THE 37 PRACTICES OF A BODHISATTVA by Khenpo Tsulnam Rinpoche January 13 & 14 at 10am

Khenpo Tsulnam Rinpoche will offer a 2-day teaching on The 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva.  This classic text belongs to the Mahayana (the Great Vehicle) tradition of Buddhism and is based on the Madhyamaka (the Middle Way) school of philosophy, which advocates the use of analysis to attain clear understanding and omniscient wisdom.
It encourages the practice of the six paramitas, or perfections: generosity, discipline, patience, diligence, meditative concentration, and deeper knowing or superior intelligence. 10am – 4pm daily (lunch break at noon).
