Kurukulla Center

for Tibetan Buddhist Studies


SUNDAYS 10:00 AM-12:00 PM

Kurukulla Buddhist Centre - Study of Buddhism


Geshe Tenley returns to Sunday morning teaching with a commentary on Chapter Six, "The Perfection of Patience", from Master Shantideva's Guide to the Bodhisattva way of Life. In the whole of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, there is no single treatise more deeply revered or widely practiced than 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. In Chapter Six, Shantideva focuses on why it is essential to cultivate patience and how we can begin to do so.

All are welcome! You can participate through Zoom or in person
