      For the Benefit of All Beings: classic text the Bodhicharyavatara

      The main aim of these sessions is to help us discover the relevance of this classic text, the Bodhicharyavatara, for our daily lives, to better understand ourselves and others, and identify and change some of our unhelpful patterns. The module will take a more experiential approach, rather than cover the entire text word for word in a traditional Tibetan shedra style.

      The first three sessions of these monthly modules will explore some of the more general topics of the Bodhicharyavatara,

      as an introduction to the text, including: what is compassion, a bodhisattva, and the benefits of altruism.

      Tsoknyi Rinpoche has advised that it is best to connect with our ‘essence’ love before embarking on a text like the Bodhicharyavatara, which mainly emphasizes ‘expression’ love, through practices such as lojong. Consequently, the module’s practice focus will be on compassion for ourselves, starting off with a month-long exploration of Tsoknyi Rinpoche’s methods of ‘dropping’ and ‘handshake’ as a means to deeply connect with ourselves. Then we will embark on a cycle of ‘self-compassion’ based on practices, including body scans, loving kindness for ourselves and self tonglen.

      We will receive teachings from various Tibetan buddhist teachers and other instructors.

      These teachings are suitable for the general public who have some familiarity with meditation practice.

      Cost: Payment required - $20 per session
