The San Luis Obispo Bodhi Path Center hosts dharma teacher Khaydroup Zangmo for a weekend workshop on using meditation to access our inner wisdom. Khaydroup will teach from Boundless Wisdom, Shamar Rinpoche’s new, posthumously published manual of samatha (calm abiding) and vipassana (insight) meditation. The program will include teachings and guided meditations.
“The basis for both the awakening of a Buddha and the ignorance of ordinary beings is nothing other than the mind,” explains Bodhi Path founder Shamar Rinpoche. Understanding experientially how the mind gives rise to both suffering and enlightenment is essential to the Buddhist path, and proper meditation is the key to this experiential understanding; through meditation we recognize mind’s true nature, dissolve the layers of ignorance, and move past our misperceptions of the way the world is.
Saturday, November 10th, 10 AM to 5 PM with breaks and lunch
Sunday, November 11th, 10 AM to 5 PM with breaks and lunch
Participants are strongly encouraged to attend both days to get the most benefit from the teachings.
Teacher Offerings: Please support Khaydroup by making an offering to express your gratitude and support her dharma activities. You can donate by cash, check or credit card at the center.
Lunches: Snacks and tea will be available at the breaks and a healthy lunch will be provided both days.
Books: We will study the text slowly and carefully following the guidelines on page xiii of Boundless Wisdom. Shamar Rinpoche first recommends reading the booklet, Boundless Awakening, the small meditation manual, then the first two chapters of Boundless Wisdom, then studying the Path to Awakening before continuing in Boundless Wisdom. So, we can begin this journey and see how far we get. Khaydroup suggests that people pre-read the little booklet, Boundless Awakening, and get the new book, Boundless Wisdom.
