Sundays in July 2019 – The Way of the Bodhisattva with Khenpo Tsering

Khenpo Tsering will be teaching from the classic Buddhist text “The Way of the Bodhisattva” by Shantideva on Sundays from 10 AM to 12 PM at the San Luis Obispo Bodhi Path Center.

“Treasured by Buddhists of all traditions, “The Way of the Bodhisattva” is a guide to cultivating the mind of enlightenment, and to generating the qualities of love, compassion, generosity, and patience… As such, Shantideva’s work embodies a definition of compassion raised to its highest power and minutely lays out the methods by which this is to be achieved”. – from the Introduction.

This is a rare opportunity to delve into the meaning, qualities and practices of this classic text with the aid of an authentic Tibetan Buddhist scholar. Khenpo plans to start with chapter one on July 7 and proceed through the book as time, discussion and interests dictate. Please contact us for more information: sanluisobispo@bodhipath.org.
