The 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva: A Guidebook for Walking the Path
10:00 AM
Namchak Community
Description:
An intimate weekend retreat focused on the 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva.

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.
Gyalse Tokme Zangpo wrote The Thirty-Seven Practices of All the Bodhisattvas in the fourteenth century. His eloquent verses of advice summarize the meaning of the bodhisattva path and instructions on how to follow it. The bodhisattva is someone who has aroused Bodhichitta, the compassionate wish to attain enlightenment for the benefit of all beings and who also wishes to bring them to that state.
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.
