In the whole of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition there is no single treatise more deeply revered or widely practiced than  A Guide to the Bodhisattva Way of Life. Composed in the eighth century by the Indian Bodhisattva Shantideva, it became an instant classic in the curricula of the Buddhist monastic universities of India, and its renown has grown ever since. Shantideva presents methods to harmonize one's life with the Bodhisattva ideal and inspires the reader to cultivate the perfections of the Bodhisattva – generosity, ethics, patience, zeal, meditative concentration and wisdom.

Event: Tara practice.Date: Saturdays at 2pm

Green Tara single website.jpgTo be successful in our Dharma practice and to actualize the path to Enlightenment, we need to rely on a special Buddha like Tara.  She is the Buddha in female form and is the embodiment of all the Buddhas’ siddhis.  Tara is also known as the mother of all Buddhas.  There are many inner and outer obstacles to our spiritual development.  As the goddess of compassion, she has twenty-one forms, each possessing different qualities to assist sentient beings.  She grants accomplishments and provides protections from all sufferings, sickness, and obstacles. Everyone is welcome to participate in practice. We have books. 

Please check our monthly calender for updates and any changes in schedule.
