The Bodhisattva's Jewel Garland (Bodhisattvamanevali)
with Geshe Sherab
Tuesdays, Sep 26, Oct 3, 10, 17 & 24, 7–8:30pm EDT ONLINE
Bodhisattvas are driven by their deep compassion to attain enlightenment, the fully developed state in which one can benefit other beings most effectively. In this weekend course, Geshe Sherab will examine a brief and lyrical text by Atisha, the great Indian master who went to Tibet in the 11th century, in which he presents the most essential life instructions for bodhisattvas. Like a string of precious gems, these guidelines are to be worn like a beautiful garland by all those who wish to journey the path of full awakening.
Geshe Sherab’s teachings are clear, practical, and he relates to students with great kindness and patience. Please join us in learning to weave beautiful garlands of wisdom and compassion.
