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 until the summer we are studying Chapter 8: how to train in mental stabilisation, or concentration.

From September onwards we will study Chapter 9: the perfection of wisdom and Chapter 10: dedication.
