 The Buddhist Path

Namchak Khen Rinpoche at the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas

March 30, 2019, 2 - 5 p.m.

Khen Rinpoche will go over the entire Buddhist path. The Buddhist path according to the ancient school of Tibetan Buddhism, the Nyingmapa school, has three vehicles and nine divisions within those three of practice and study. The three principle vehicles of Buddhist philosophy and practice are the Hinayana, Mahayana and Vajrayana as symbolized at the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas. The practices ascend from foundational methods such as calm abiding meditation to the pinnacle of Buddhist practice, Dzogchen. For those who have wanted to know what Buddhists do and how to follow the path this will be an excellent overview.

The Thirty-Seven Practices of the Bodhisattvas

 Namchak Khen Rinpoche at the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas

June 1st thru June 2nd, 2019

‘The perfect Buddhas, who are the source of all benefit and joy, Come into being through accomplishing the sacred Dharma. Since this in turn depends on knowing how to practice, I shall now describe the practices of all the Buddhas’ heirs’ 

- Gyalse Tokme Zangpo (Translated by Adam Pearcey, 2006, lotsawahouse.org)

Gyalse Tokme Zangpo wrote The Thirty-Seven Practices of All the Bodhisattvas in the fourteenth century. His eloquent verses of advice summarize the meaning of the bodhisattva path and instructions on how to follow it. The bodhisattva is someone who has aroused Bodhichitta, the compassionate wish to attain enlightenment for the benefit of all beings and who also wishes to bring them to that state. This text is considered a masterpiece on how to follow the Buddhist path. Khen Rinpoche will elaborate on the many meanings of this text from his own vast study and realization. Webinar sliding scale: $50 - $60
