About the event
“Right now we are unable to benefit all living beings, but we have the potential for this ability.” - Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Modern Buddhism
We all have limitless potential. Unfortunately, we are only using a small percentage of our human potential at present. Even worse, many of the ways we are using our intelligence are actually harmful to ourselves and others.
These classes will introduce the practice of the “six perfections” - training in giving, moral discipline, patience, effort, meditation, and wisdom, with a motivation to realize our limitless potential. By learning how to integrate this practice with simple trainings in active love and compassion, we will make spiritual progress much more quickly.
