This Weekend Precious Teachings
37 Practices of a Bodhisattva
Given by Venerable Drupon Rinchen Dorjee
July 23-24, Saturday & Sunday
10-12pm & 2-5pm.
This weekend will be an exploration of how we might live our lives from a place of loving kindness and compassion, guided by traditional teaching on how to cultivate bodhicitta. Drupon Rinchen Dorjee will give teachings from the 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva.
The 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva is a text written by Ngolchu Thogme Rinpoche (1295-1369 CE) on the Mahayana path of developing bodhicitta and the joy of dedicating one's life to the benefit of others.
