THE WAY OF THE COMPASSIONATE WARRIOR
With Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche
| PUBLIC | COMPASSION |
During this event, Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche—one of the most renowned Tibetan masters currently teaching in the West—will present the Buddhist path of training in wisdom and compassion, based on the renowned text, The Thirty-Seven Practices of all the Bodhisattvas.
A bodhisattva or ‘compassionate warrior’ is someone who is determined to work with their self-grasping and self-cherishing attitudes in order to go beyond the small confines of ego and let their innate enlightened qualities blossom. Therein lies the Buddhist solution to truly benefitting not only ourselves but anyone we encounter and beyond to the world at large. As Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche says: “True compassion is not limited or preferential, it is not bound by likes and dislikes, or by partiality for one over another. True compassion is all-encompassing, like the sky.”
The teachings will give clear guidance on how to bring clarity and authentic compassion into all areas of our lives and will show us how we can use all our experiences, good and bad, to awaken our compassionate heart.
The Thirty-Seven Practices of all the Bodhisattvas
Khandro Rinpoche will base her teachings on the renowned text, The Thirty-Seven Practices of all the Bodhisattvas, written by Gyalsé Tokmé Zangpo, a 14th century Tibetan Buddhist master, whose timeless wisdom has a refreshing immediacy for the modern world. This concise text is said to distil the essence of the vast and profound teachings of the Great Vehicle (Mahayana) in an easily comprehensible form, fit for those who do not have the time and fortune to study all the teachings on the bodhisattva path in their entirety and vastness.
