with Andy Wistreich
Entering the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life’ by Shantideva is one of the most famous of all Mahayana Buddhist texts. Practical, timeless, profound and even disturbing in places, within its verses can be found the entire Buddhist path to Enlightenment by using the framework of the six perfections – generosity, ethics, patience, enthusiasm, meditation and wisdom.
Andy is teaching this text over a series of weekends and this visit will cover the start of chapter nine on the cultivation of wisdom and what it means in a Buddhist context. As this is the start of a new chapter it is not necessary to have been to the previous sessions. This chapter will be covered over three days, with the other two days in early 2018.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for the commentary so you can read chapter nine of the text (in the translation by Stephen Batchelor) before the teaching.
