We are pleased to announce that Lama Mark Webber will be giving detailed teachings and meditations on Thogme Zangpo’s famous text: The Thirty-Seven Practices of Bodhisattvas.

Detailed Teachings and Meditations on the Awakening Mind (bodhicitta): The Lama will give: 1) Detailed teachings and meditations on Thogme Zangpo’s (13th cent.) famous text called The Thirty-Seven Practices of Bodhisattvas (text provided at the teachings). Learning to gathering all the essential qualities, including the correct attitude for meditation — for our and other’s awakening and freedom— is the subject of this text. It includes generating relative compassion and ultimate bodhicitta, thinking and doing like a bodhisattva are the mindfulness and vipaśyanā practices of the Great Vehicle of Buddhism. Lama la will also give instructions on the way in which we gain mastery so that each breath is an act for awakening and freeing all beings of suffering.

Bodhisattvas have a profound and continuous wish, and numerous activities for the complete liberation of self and others. Their activities spring forth from different degrees of realization of the unity of compassion and emptiness—bodhicitta. This heartfelt wish and activity is essential for unfolding the bodhisattva stages and the unfolding of Mahamudra and Dzogchen practices.
