- Mondays, April 8 through June - The Bodhisattva's Way of Life, Part I (ACI Course X)
This Course is the first in a three part series based upon A Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life (Bodhisattvacharya Avatara) by Master Shantideva (700 AD), and the commentary Entry Point for Children of the Victorious Buddhas (Gyalse Juk-ngok) by Gyaltsab Je (1364-1432). Master Shantideva's work is considered the best book ever written to learn how to live as a bodhisattva, and this is one of the most famous commentaries ever written; it has been translated into English for the first time for this Course. Topics include: the benefits of being a bodhisattva, the preliminaries you must undertake to become a bodhisattva, how to remove existing obstacles which prevent realization of true bodhichitta, how to collect the causes to develop true bodhichitta, the recollection and watchfulness required to think and act like a bodhisattva, The Guide as a description of the six perfections, the order in which to undertake practice of the six perfections, how to treat your mental afflictions, and an explanation of the perfection of giving and the perfection of an ethical way of life.

- Wednesdays, April 10 - Bhagavad Gita (upcoming)
The Asian Classics Institute (Singapore) offers teachings not just from the Buddhist tradition, but from all authentic spiritual paths. We are excited about this upcoming four part discussion-based series. It will be led by husband and wife team, Ramesh and Charu, who are very familiar with this transformative text -- this is a very special treat, so don't miss out!

The Bhagavad Gita is one of the most famous of the Hindu scriptures. It has been said that there is no significant problem in life, which cannot be referred to the Bhagavad Gita for a solution. Ostensibly a dialogue between God and one of his devotees, it is a veritable treasure chest of guidance on how to lead your daily life with peace and happiness, in spite of whatever comes your way.

Time: 7:00-8:30pm (Wednesdays beginning April 10 through May)
Venue: 51B Temple St, 2/F
Teachings are free of charge; donations appreciated to support ongoing sessions
