Shantideva Retreat

Saturday, October 28, 2017 from 10 AM to 4 PM
at Gaden Samten Ling's Alberta Centre for Peace & Meditation
located at 11403-101 Street in Edmonton

Kushok continues his commentary on Shantideva’s landmark text on cultivating the altruistic heart that works for the benefit of all beings day and night, The Way of the Bodhisattva. This teaching begins at Verse 29 in Chapter 7. Chapter 7 describes Joyous Effort which means having the courage to persevere no matter what obstacles arise. When challenges arise we pay special attention to applying the teachings in order to overcome our negative emotions. This one day teaching retreat combines Kushok’s valuable philosophical instruction, meditation, and the opportunity to have dharma questions answered by Kushok.

Anyone with an interest in learning about joyous effort and developing a compassionate mind is welcome to attend this course. All faiths welcome. Your investment is $45. Discounts available to Jewel and Vajra Society Members. Lunch is available, by donation. Suggested donation $10.
