WEDNESDAY DHARMA STUDY ANNOUNCEMENT!
Beginning April 4, we will read and discuss Shantideva's The Way of the Bodhisattva. Words do not convey how precious this teaching is. Our Sangha studied it a few years ago and it remains one of the most remembered and cherished topics we've shared. It bears revisiting.
The Way of the Bodhisattva is profoundly concise, beautiful poetry that captures the essence of the Bodhisattva Ideal. Its verses are easy to grasp yet so pregnant with meaning that one cannot avoid being inspired to deep contemplation and selfless intention.
Please join us on this journey, which will last into midsummer. Next week (March 28) we'll transition in the direction of Shantideva with a teaching on Bodhisattva Dharma. A week later (April 4) Brother Bo Gak will begin our study of The Way of the Bodhisattva with an introduction to the book. Please obtain a copy before then as we will do shared readings. The version we'll use is:
The Way of the Bodhisattva (Shambhala Library) [Hardcover]
by Shantideva and translated by the Padmakara Translation Group
The hardcover version is available at Amazon for under $13:
[The paperback version will save you 52 cents, or more if you buy it used.
