The six paramitas provide the bodhisattva -- or one who aspires to live an awakened life for others -- with guidelines for both practice and daily life. This bodhisattva activity includes six techniques of nongrasping, called paramitas, or transcendent virtues: generosity, discipline, patience, exertion, meditation and prajna (knowledge).

This one-day course will consist of discussions, readings, contemplations and meditation practice. The course uses Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche's The Bodhisattva Path of Wisdom and Compassion: The Profound Treasure of the Ocean of Dharma, Volume Two as its guide. The text is not required for the class.

We will go out together for lunch in the area.
