Special Winter series, training in the six perfections.
The supreme good heart of Bodhichitta is the most precious mind we can develop. It is our wish to attain enlightenment for the sole purpose of benefiting others. A Bodhisattva, motivated by great compassion commits to training their mind in the six perfections in order to accomplish that supreme goal.
We too can train practically in this path within the context of our daily lives. Changing our actions, transforming everything into a beneficial action through training in these virtues. According to Buddha and all the enlightened beings in order to solve our daily problems and build the foundation for pure happiness we need only to change our intention, our view, and our actions. Through this we will fulfill our own purpose and the purpose of others.
Nagarjuna explained the benefits of the six perfections: “From giving comes wealth, from moral discipline comes happiness, from patience comes an attractive form, from joyous effort your wishes are fulfilled, from concentration you will gain inner peace, and from wisdom you will be released from ignorance.
Join us for this special winter series and learn a powerful meditation on giving.
Training in giving our future happiness of enlightenment to all living beings now, all six perfections into
one meditation, bringing the future result into the present moment.
“Nowadays, with the world in turmoil, there is a particular need for Westerners to cultivate bodhichitta. If we are to make it through these perilous times, true Bodhisattvas must appear in the West as well as the East”
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
