After careful consideration and with sensitivity to all that is going on in the world, we have decided to not have anyone travel and gather in person for teachings this spring. Now Khentrul Rinpoche will be presenting the Thirty-Seven Practices of a Bodhisattva using the Zoom Platform (a live internet app). This decision is for the protection of each and every one of us and our many connections, near and far, from the uncertainties and risks of the global coronavirus epidemic.
As Rinpoche wants to continue to offer dharma teachings, we hope that you can participate from your homes! All you need is a device with internet service. We ask that everyone participating register by March 16th and then we will email all registrants details about how to join the teachings on March 17th.
The Thirty Seven Practice of a Bodhisattva by Ngulchu T'hogmed
This teaching contains the key points of practice for a complete spiritual path: How to find the methods to enter the path to awakening, how to practice while on the path, and how to attain ultimate fruition. The text includes explanations on how to practice bodhichitta-kindhearted intention, the six perfections, calm abiding meditation, and profound insight. It also teaches how to carry adversity onto the path. By studying and contemplating these teachings, we discover an extraordinary means to develop spiritual practice through logic and reasoning, which results in confidence arising from the very core of our being. These teachings inspire us to endeavor on the path, urging us to leave behind all activities that bring small results, and instead rejoice in the practice that bears great fruit.
