This series will inspire us to practise the Bodhisattva’s way of life. A Bodhisattva is a friend of the world who, motivated by compassion, seeks enlightenment to benefit all living beings without exception. Their way of life is characterised by six practices known as the six perfections: giving, moral discipline, patience, effort, concentration and wisdom.
We will look closely at several of these essential practices and be inspired to integrate them into our busy daily life. By training in these perfections, we will discover a life of great meaning and benefit. Our ordinary way of life will become the Bodhisattva’s way of life, and just by our example we will have a profound effect on those around us.
This course will comprise practical teachings and meditations; you are welcome to attend just one class or sign up for the whole series.
Everyone is welcome!
