A Bodhisattva is a person who, motivated by great compassion, has developed a spontaneous wish to attain enlightenment for the sake of all living beings.  We can learn to follow the Bodhisattva’s way of life by practicing the six perfections.  In this course we will learn how to emulate the thoughts and deeds of a Bodhisattva and transform our ordinary daily life into the Bodhisattva’s way of life.

The Six Perfections are:

  • Giving ( Joyful Giving)
  • Moral Discipline (How to Abandon Non-Virture)
  • Patience (Practicing Patience)
  • Effort (Rejoicing in Our Virtue)
  • Concentration (Virtuous Concentration)
  • Wisdom (Wisdom for Our Modern World)
