The Beautiful Way of Life:
12 Week Online Course with Lama Michael Gregory “The Way of the Bodhisattva: (Bodhicaryavatara)", by Shantideva (Padmakara Translation). Shantideva’s masterpiece shows the way to transcend the limitations of selfishness and realize the boundless compassion of the Bodhisattva, whose only concern is the benefit of others. As the Padmakara translation notes, one of the greatest exemplars of the Bodhisattva’s way is His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who credits The Guide as his chief inspiration.
This 12 Part Course has 12 Video Lectures with teaching, meditation and contemplations. Class notes and quizzes can be found through our online learning system.
The series is meant for serious meditation practitioners who already have a consistent daily practice.
Course requirements include an hour a day of meditation and reading assignments as well as a willingness to try visualization meditation practices.
The course is supplemented with weekly online quizzes and reflections for bringing the practice into daily life.
This course is offered in person at our Sarasota, Florida retreat center, by live interactive video with community members throughout the world, or by viewing the recordings of classes.
The course may also be Audited without personal teacher support. If you choose to register for teacher support, please take this commitment seriously: a volunteer experienced meditator will be reserving weekly time for you.
Please read the FAQ’s below carefully before writing to us with questions.
