DISCOVERING BUDDHISM: How to Develop Bodhicitta
Wednesday, 15 April 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until Wednesday, 3 June 2020
Come discover the clear meditation instruction available in Tibetan Buddhism that enables us to develop our innate qualities of loving kindness and compassion. Become skilled at applying these techniques to generate the mind of bodhicitta, the wish to attain enlightenment for the benefit of others.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche says: “The whole thing, so many practices, all come down to live the daily life with bodhicitta motivation to put all the effort in that whatever you do. This way your life doesn’t get wasted and it becomes full of joy and happiness, with no regrets later, especially when you die and you can die with a smile outside and a smile in the heart.”
Discover how to develop a foundation of equanimity, towards others and one’s own internal experiences. Then learn the three distinct methods to develop bodhicitta; Six causes and one effect, exchanging self for others, combined eleven steps from Lama Tsong Khapa. And based on this, practice the six perfections, bringing them into daily life.
