Becoming a Bodhisattva

This course taught by Gen Delek is following the book Meaningful to Behold which is a commentary to the powerful and much-loved poem, Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life by the 8th century Buddhist master, Shantideva.

From April 11 – June 20 we are studying Chapter 8: how to train in mental stabilisation, or concentration.
