Becoming a Friend of the World • The Practice of the Six Perfections

Buddhist meditation classes • Sundays 11:00 am – 12:15 pm • in person only

Practitioners of Mahayana Buddhism train to become Bodhisattvas, a person who, motivated by great compassion, wishes to attain enlightenment to benefit each and every living beings without exception.  This supreme wish is called bodhichitta.

It is said that all the Buddhas of the past, present and future practised the six perfections, which are like the main road to enlightenment.  In this series of classes, we will explore how we can practice the six perfections and make all our daily actions meaningful.  Everyone welcome.

As usual, these classes are followed by complementary snacks and refreshments and an opportunity to ask questions.
