Developing Good Qualities

Geshe Ngawang will speak about how to cultivate and sustain a positive attitude and kind heart by practicing the trainings of the bodhisattva path. This class is suitable for both newcomers and more advanced student.

The Ornament of Clear Realizations
The Ornament summarizes the Buddha's vast Perfection of Wisdom teachings, describing the paths followed by bodhisattvas, hearers and solitary realizers and the fruits of their practice. This essential Mahayana text is difficult to comprehend without the interpretation of a skilled teacher. Geshe Ngawang Tenley, who is near completion of his geshe degree at Sera Je Monastery, continues the commentary this winter while Geshe Tsulga is away. Although this class is open to anyone, a background in the Lamrim teachings or familiarity with Buddhist philosophy is recommended for this intermediate level series. However, even without familiarity with the topic, Geshela has emphasized it is highly beneficial to listen in order to receive imprints which lays the foundation for understanding in the future.
