Living a Loving and Awakened Life

Bodhicaryavatara, a commentary by Shanti Deva offers a progressive guide for aspiring individuals to embark on the Bodhisattva path.

How is the Bodhisattva Path relevant to us all in our lives?  We all wish to care and love those around us, but sometimes we are bogged down by challenges in our lives, hampering us.  Instead of benefiting others we may even bring harm to ourselves and others.

This series of classes gently nudges us forward with words of wisdom from the past bringing light to our present and the future.

Come join us to learn the commentary on The Entry to the Bodhisattva Practice.

Every Thursday 730pm to 930pm @ THE BUDDHIST LIBRARY
