The bodhisattva precepts are taken on the basis of having taken refuge in the Three Jewels and some or all of the five lay precepts. Buddha prescribed the precepts in order to protect us from doing actions that bring unhappy results and to help us attain awakening quickly and easily. Therefore, precepts are not burdens to bear but are ornaments to be worn joyfully. The format will consist of a teaching session by Lama Matthew Palden Gocha and ending with the Bodhisattva Vow ceremony. No fees but dana to the teacher is suggested. We do ask that you have taken Refuge Vows previously.
Preceptor: Lama Matthew Palden Gocha
Dates: One session on Wednesday April 22, 2020
Time: 7:45 pm – 9 pm
Prerequisite: Bodhisattva Challenge, Tier 1 Classes and Refuge Vows
