General Buddhist Studies Course
The Thirty-Seven Practices of the Bodhisattvas
Course guided by Dzogchen Ranyak Patrul Rinpoche
      May 9 (Thur) - May 12 (Sun), 2013


The General Buddhist Studies Course has been designed for those who wish to be guided through their study of Buddhism, but who do not wish to commit themselves to a program of continual study and practice. During the course, Patrul Rinpoche teaches important aspects of Buddhist teachings.
As a topic for this year’s course Patrul Rinpoche choose “The Thirty-Seven Practices of the Bodhisattvas”, a classic text composed by the great Tibetan master Gyalse Togme (1295 - 1369). It beautifully portrays the central Mahayana (great Buddhist vehicle based on impartial compassion) thoughts of loving-kindness and compassion together with their cultivation through practice. Although the root text was composed some centuries ago, it remains highly relevant for modern scholars and practitioners due to its down-to-earth instructions and straightforward approach. Without much elaboration but with great literary beauty, it summarizes the quintessence of the Mahayana path in a way that has made it a precious treasure to spiritual practitioners throughout the centuries.
