Spiritual Director Kushok Lobsang Dhamchöe welcomes new and returning students to join him for a new 3-week Buddhist philosophy course, Protecting and Sustaining Bodhichitta (Great Compassion), beginning Thursday, June 2, 2022.


Drawing on the wisdom of numerous Buddhist masters, Kushok will continue his detailed commentary of Shantideva’s landmark text on cultivating the altruistic heart, The Way of the Bodhisattva. This text is considered one of the great classics of Buddhist literature and is treasured by all Buddhist traditions alike. This course will focus on Chapter 4: Carefulness, where we learn to recognize and avoid the dangers that threaten our practice of great compassion.

Now more than ever, there is a need for compassion and loving kindness in our families, our workplace, and our society. Please don’t miss out on this opportunity to train your mind and soften your heart under the careful guidance of our precious teacher, Kushok Lobsang Dhamchöe.

No pre-requisite is required. Everyone is welcome.


The course fee is $35 CAD.
