With Geshe Tenzin Zopa
6:00 pm – 7:30 pm PST
6 Fridays, April 1, 8, June 2, 9, 16, 23, 2022
The practice of taking and making an effort to keep these precious vows creates greater mindfulness and awareness. These vows provide clear guidance as to what kinds of actions should be practiced and what should be avoided in order to be of greatest benefit to others, develop compassion, and overcome selfish ways of being.
Over the course of these six classes we will be expertly guided by Geshe Zopa as he explains the differences between aspiring and engaging bodhichitta, and takes us through the eighteen root vows of a bodhisattva, so that we may develop a clear understanding of how to hold these vows purely by teaching us what actions of body, speech, or mind can damage or break a vow as well as how to restore a broken or damaged vow.
