Important Note:  

Geshe Dhargey has kindly agreed to run this class outside.  We will have a tent set-up, chairs will be 6 feet apart and we will have hand sanitizer available for all attendees.  The main house and temple will remain closed, but we will have access to the downstairs bathroom if needed.  All attendees will be required to wear a mask anytime you are not seated.   In addition, you will need to register to attend this class as attendance will be limited to 12 participants.  We will also run the class via Zoom in case you prefer to attend remotely.  

Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding as DNKL is not set up to allow us to fully meet the requirements for inside attendance and eating. 

Overview:

Buddhism is a psychology of the mind, providing us methods to understand our emotions and how to change our bad habits and thoughts to be happy. Geshe Dhargey shows us how to apply Buddhist practice to overcome difficulties in daily life.  

Based on the A Guide to the Bodhisattva’s[1] Way of Life, a famous Mahāyāna Buddhist text written c. 700 AD in Sanskrit verse by Shantideva (Śāntideva), a Buddhist monk at Nālandā Monastic University in India.  Treasured by Buddhists of all traditions, The Way of the Bodhisattva (Bodhicharyavatara) is a guide to cultivating the mind of enlightenment and to generating the qualities of love, compassion, generosity, and patience. This text has been studied, practiced, and expounded upon in an unbroken tradition for centuries. Presented in the form of a personal meditation in verse, it outlines the path of the Bodhisattvas—those who renounce the peace of individual enlightenment and vow to work for the liberation of all beings and to attain buddhahood for their sake.
