Wednesday evening meditation class
The Bodhisattva’s Way of Life
24 August to 21 September
A Bodhisattva is a Friend of the World, someone who possesses the mind wishing to attain enlightenment for the benefit of others. With this mind, called ‘bodhichitta,’ we can transform all our daily activities into skilful methods that benefit others.
We will be using the beautiful poem ‘Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life’ by the 8th century master Shantideva, and its commentary ‘Meaningful to Behold’ by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.
