The Bodhisattva Vow - The Practices of A Bodhisattva:

The Practices of a Bodhisattva is a 12 Week Course with teachings, meditation and contemplations with Lama Michael Gregory.

We will be referring to Geshe Sonam Rinchen's text, The Thirty-Seven Practices of Bodhisattvas in the fourteenth century. His succinct and simple verses of advice summarize the quintessence of the Mahayana path to perfection.
"Recognizing their true potential and letting go of everything which could hinder them on their spiritual journey, Bodhisattvas entrust themselves to the path taught by the Buddha.
Resisting disturbing emotions, they learn to respond to difficult situations in a constructive way. Fully understanding the nature of reality and the illusion-like nature of pleasure and pain, they overcome clinging attachment and aversion. In these ways, Bodhisattvas come to cherish living beings as the source of all happiness and are ultimately able to work solely for the good of all."
You may participate online by watching the recorded video sessions through our interactive learning course.

We will be using the scholastic texts, “The Bodhisattva Vow”, "The Thirty-Seven Practices of Bodhisattvas", and the Six Perfections”, by Geshe Sonam Rinchen, all available on Amazon or Shambala Publications.

At the completion of the course I will offer The Bodhisattva Vow Ceremony and Buddhist Refuge with Precepts in late September after we return from Tibet.
