37 Practices of a Bodhisattva: A Guide to Walking the Path
Join Namchak Khen Rinpoche for an intimate weekend retreat focused on The 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva, a profound text that serves as a practical guide on how to walk the path of the bodhisattva. A bodhisattva is someone who has aroused bodhicitta, the compassionate wish to help others attain enlightenment before themselves. These practices help us to connect to our true nature and live a happier and more fulfilled life.
The Thirty-Seven Practices of All the Bodhisattvas, written by Gyalse Tokme Zangpo in the 14th century, eloquently summarizes the meaning of the bodhisattva path and the instructions on how to follow it. This text is considered a masterpiece and serves as a practical guide for those seeking to walk the path of enlightenment. Khen Rinpoche will elaborate on the many meanings of this text from his own vast study and realization. This is a retreat not to be missed - perfect for beginning and more seasoned students alike!
