Our Weekly Topic this season…
A combination of classic & modern that promotes awareness & emotional literacy
Each meeting has Three Parts:
1. We begin each meeting with group chanting of the meditation on Chenrezig, Bodhisattva of Compassion. Texts provided. Followed by:
2. Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life
Led by Lama Yeshe Palmo, we will explore in depth the famous and universally loved poem for daily living, Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life, that has inspired many generations of Buddhists and non-Buddhists since it was first composed in the 8th century by the famous Indian Buddhist master Shantideva. A classic (yet always contemporary) set of methods for cultivating love, compassion, and the full awakening of Buddhahood using both meditation and our daily life experiences.
Our study is based mainly on two books: Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life by Shantideva and Nectar of Manjushri’s Speeach as the commentary.
