August 11, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - August 13, 2017 @ 6:00 pm PDT
Location: Rossland – specific location to be announced Dates and times: Friday evening August 11, 7:30 pm. 2 classes Saturday August 12th, 9:30 am & 4:00 pm. 2 classes Sunday August 13th, 9:30 am & 4:00 pm. “Traditionally the Parami are literally the “completions” or “perfections” that we develop for carrying us across to full awakening or liberation. In order to go safely and do well on a long mountain trek we first train and we must have the appropriate good food to sustain our journey. So too, we need to strengthen our capacity to liberate us and all others through the profound study and practice of the Parami. These six Parami of—generosity, ethics, patience, energy, meditative concentration and wisdom—form the foundation and capacity for us to journey and explore along all Buddhist paths of Liberation. Explanations on each of the relative and ultimate Parami, daily meditations to try out and explore, both in the group and privately, will be given. Through the practice and study of the Parami, they become naturally incorporated into our beings as the display of compassion and pristine awareness.” Lama Mark Costs: By donation for the Lama’s teaching and generosity.
