True happiness in life does not come from selfish pursuits. When we are driven by selfish motives, we tend to experience fears, doubts, and insecurities, and become attached to the pleasures while avoiding the unpleasant. To liberate ourselves from this cycle, we must examine our motivations and transform them. By doing so, we can learn to live beyond our hopes and fears. The 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva guide us on this path of transformation, offering time-proven methods to overcome adversity and transform our minds.
Geshema Dawa Dolma La will lead a 5-day course on the 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva. Her teachings will help us aspire to embody compassion in our lives. With her down-to-earth approach and understanding of the modern mind, Geshema La will offer a reading of the text that resonates with our contemporary lives while preserving the essence of the original message.
