Kushok continues his commentary on Shantideva’s landmark text on cultivating the altruistic heart that works for the benefit of all beings day and night, The Way of the Bodhisattva. This teaching begins at Verse 63 in Chapter 7. Chapter 7 describes Joyous Effort which means having the courage to persevere no matter what obstacles arise. When challenges arise we pay special attention to applying the teachings in order to overcome our afflictive emotions. This one day teaching retreat combines Kushok’s valuable philosophical instruction, meditation, and the opportunity to have dharma questions answered by Kushok.
Anyone with an interest in compassion is welcome to attend this course. All faiths welcome.
