Buddha Day and the Bodhisattva Ideal
May 5 - A celebration of the Buddha’s birth, Enlightenment and Death with Danadasa

May 12, 19, & 26 – The Bodhisattva Ideal with Prasadachitta and Danadasa
The Buddhist path can be described as the cultivation of Wisdom and Compassion, and it is the Bodhisattva Ideal that brings Compassion to the fore. A bodhisattva strives to reduce the suffering and increase the happiness of all sentient beings. Through the cultivation of Compassion, we begin to realize that our individual liberation is intertwined with the liberation of all sentient beings.
