Description: The Thirty-seven Practices of the Bodhisattvas is a classic mind-training text within Tibetan Buddhism. The verses of this text outline all the essential practices of the Mahayana Path including generating bodhichitta, understanding the nature of reality, transforming negative emotions and practicing the six perfections. By studying, contemplating and meditating on these verses and their meaning, one can transform their feelings, thoughts and actions to progress towards becoming a bodhisattva. Recently, His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama gave an overview of this important text in a webcast teaching. During this weekend intensive, Geshe-la will provide a more detail explanation of key points of this important text and provide guidance in how to apply these mind-training verses and their meaning in one’s daily life. This teaching is excellent for both newcomers and more experienced students. For newcomers, it will provide the foundation for a basic understanding of key points of study and practice within Tibetan Buddhism. And for more experienced student, the teachings will serve to refine one’s understanding for deeper levels of the practice.
