Weekend Teachings on "The 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva"
The basic structure of these practices is the complete path of the Bodhisattva. The first 2 verses are the traditional ones which express homage to a deity, the embodiement of enlightened qualities and then state the purpose for writing the text and the author's commitment to do so. The main body of the text deals with the causes that give rise to bodhichitta (the mind of awakening). The mind training of a superior individual is discussed in the second part of the text, where the central topic is how to engender supreme Bodhichitta. In this section there are 5 main divisions that give advice on how to develop Bodhichitta and how to keep it from degenerating. First one should realize the equality of self and other and learn how to exchange one's own happiness for another's suffering. Secondly the text shows how to bring all situations of worldly life, including obscuring emotions and mistaken views onto the path, or how to integrate them into one's practice. The third is how to practice the six perfections. The fourth describes how to work with one's negative side and failures, and finally, there is a summary and dedication. While The Thirty-seven Practices of a Bodhisattva contains a few stanzas on the progressive stages of meditation on emptiness, the text deals primarily with meditation on the relative. Khenpo will bring his wisdom and insight to these classic teachings and guide us towards a deeper understanding of this most profound path.
Khenpo Ngawang Dhamchoe has been a monk for over 35 years and has been teaching in Australia and overseas for over 15 years, he studied and taught at Sakya College and has a wide knowledge of Buddhist philosophy and practice.

To celebrate the Birth, Enlightenment and Parinirvana of the Buddha
Come along and join in an evening of chanting, meditation and walking meditation to honour this most auspicious Buddhist event. We will start the evening off with the 16 Arhat puja (ceremony) which calls on all the Buddha's disciples to help the teachings of the Buddha flourish. The Arhat's made a promise that they would always come if their names were called to help the teachings prosper. The teachings are all about bringing a wise heart and mind into our world with compassion and kindness. We cultivate these qualities with our meditation and mindfulness.
Bring a plate to share afterwards. No Bookings required
