 Registration is closed for this event
Special series on studying this essential text of timeless wisdom by Shantideva with Lama Choedak Rinpoche. Note: As a special initiative this course will be offered for FREE this term online via Facebook and Youtube live.

About this course:

In these classes, Rinpoche will give teachings on the classic Indian Buddhist text Bodhisattva’s Way of Life by Shantideva. This popular Buddhist text provides wonderfully useful tools for skilful and balanced living.

Lama Choedak Rinpoche, who memorised this text when he was 15 years old, will translate from the Tibetan text and offer a down-to-earth commentary with wisdom, humour and compassion.

A special focus this term will be on Chapter V of the text on Guarding The Mind. The practical wisdom of The Bodhisattva’s Way of Life gives the essential instructions for how to live a happy life in harmony with others.

These classes are suitable for everyone, regardless of your religious interest. There are no prerequisites for attendance - it is fine to join the classes throughout the year.

Special Note: Sakya Losal Choe Dzong will offer this course for free, but you are encouraged to offer a donation and or become a benefactor for our course(s) so that we can offer teachings more widely and freely.
