Mitra Study beginning March 18 2024

The Way of the Bodhisattva

8 Weeks from Monday March 18 to May 6, in person at the SFBC, 7pm to 9pm

With Padmatara and Mokshasi

Open to all Mitras.

The Bodicaryavatara, or The Way of the Bodhisattva, written by Shantideva in the 800's, is an amazing teaching on the 6 Paramitas (ways to the other shore, beyond the self):

Dana/Generosity, Sila/Ethics, Ksanti/Patience, Virya/Effort or Energy, Dhyana/Meditation, and Prajna/Wisdom.

It also covers the benefits of Bodhicitta and the verses of the 7 fold puja based on this text.  It's wide ranging and definitely challenging in parts. 

Here's the downloadable PDF

The PDF contains extracts related to the study, but it's also helpful to have the whole text for reflection. We have several books at the SFBC that you can borrow, or you'll find suggested books in the reference material at the end of the PDF.  Let us know if you have any questions.
