108 Day Bodhisattva Challenge
January 5, 2022 @ 7:45 pm - 9:00 pm
This challenge will be practice intensive for those who want to apply their understanding of Bodhichitta with daily practice. We welcome new students who are looking to learn about the Bodhisattva Mind Training and how to apply it to their Buddhist path, as well as experienced students who have insights to share.
The main book that will be used for the challenge will be A Fearless Heart: How the Courage to Be Compassionate Can Transform Our Lives by Thupten Jinpa Ph.D.. This book shows how the meeting of contemplative insights and practices with modern science can lead to offerings that are beneficial for everyone interested in deeper personal spiritual transformation.
“Compassion is fundamental to our basic nature as human beings. Connecting with our compassionate part, nurturing it, and relating to ourselves, others, and the world around us from this place is the key to our happiness as individuals and our societal well-being. Each one of us can take steps to make compassion a central reality of our own lives and our shared world.” – Thupten Jinpa Ph.D.
Kick off party for the 108 Day Bodhisattva Challenge is Sunday January 2, 2022 at 10:30am and will be during the Sunday Service.
