Geshe Sherab will teach on The Bodhisattva’s Jewel Garland, a text by Atisha on life guidelines for bodhisattvas. Join us in learning to weave beautiful garlands of wisdom and compassion.
Serkong Rinpoche teaches on Shantideva’s celebrated work A Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life, which describes the path of spiritual development of the bodhisattva, from ordinary person to buddha.
In this module, we will discuss the importance of vows, their purpose and benefit, and how to take and renew them. We will then proceed to examine the elements involved in avoiding each of the eighteen root downfalls as well as the forty-six secondary transgressions, coming to appreciate how living in the bodhisattva vows provides a unique guide for engaging in the six perfections of a bodhisattva in daily life.
