The Path of the Bodhisattva
With Senior Tergar Instructor Edwin Kelley
Tergar Minneapolis / St. Paul
The bodhisattva ideal is to help all sentient beings become buddhas. This lofty intention lies at the core of Mahayana, or Great Vehicle, Buddhism. In this six-week seminar, we will explore the core teachings of this tradition, learning how we can emulate the great bodhisattvas of times past by developing the mind of awakening, or bodhichitta, and practicing the six perfections of generosity, discipline, patience, joyful effort, meditation, and wisdom. Each class includes guided meditation, periods of discussion, and video teachings by Mingyur Rinpoche. The sessions will be led by Senior Tergar Instructor Edwin Kelley.
This seminar is open to anyone with an interest in Buddhism, including both novice meditators and experienced practitioners.
