*NEW* Rongton Buddhist Philosophy Courses
We are happy to announce the entire course of 50 lessons on Shantideva's The Bodhisattvas' Way Of Life is now available in our online teachings section for current members!
Lama Choedak Rinpoche gave extensive teachings on this text at Rongton Buddhist College from Term 1 2015 to Term 4 2016. This course is a wonderful resource on one of the most highly revered writings in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.
The Bodhisattvas' Way Of Life provides wonderfully useful tools for skilful and balanced living.
In this course Lama Choedak Rinpoche, who memorised this text when he was 15 years old, reads from the Tibetan root text and offers a down to earth commentary with wisdom, humour, and compassion.
Topics include the cultivation and practice of patience, diligence, generosity, and meditation.
If you are a current member of the Society, you can listen to any of this collection for free!
Here's how to access the lessons:
