Ancient Wisdom Series - The Bodhicaryavatara: Cultivating the Heart of Patience

Posted by candradasa on Tue, 24 Mar, 2015 - 15:30

Come and join us this Saturday, 9am-1pm, to explore Shantideva’s famous work, the Bodhicaryavatara - and specifically the chapter on patience (kshanti)… We’ll be using our voices as well as our minds to try and bring to life these wonderful, subtle verses that carry much for any contemporary Dharma farer to dwell upon…

Patient endurance is the best way to make things good…

The Buddha, ‘Dhammapada’

Come and cultivate the heart of patience this weekend!...

I loved reading this magazine!

As I hope to visit the Northeast (from UK) this winter, 2014, I enjoyed seeing some of what you all got up to last winter. Exciting times! (including a “new” editor, I believe?!)

Welcome to the Order, Rijupatha!

Much metta,

Neat use of technology to bring the sangha together for a live event, archived in a really lovely way.

FYI, folks - this transcript ends with a little lament that the complete recording of the session was lost after the event. Happily, it was later found and can be viewed in its entirety here: http://thebuddhistcentre.com/aryaloka/sangharakshita-skype-call-aryaloka…
