Awakening Your Mind: Working with The Thirty-Seven Practices of Bodhisattvas
Saturday, October 31, 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM (lunch break 12-2 PM)
At White Lotus Buddhist Center, 815 Park Ave (2nd floor of Immanuel Baptist Church), Rochester
The essential purpose of any type of Buddhist practice is working with our own mind so we can benefit others. The removal of obstacles, outer, inner and secret, is realization, the true benefit to others. Lama Dawa Zangmo will share some practical methods for using The Thirty-Seven Practices of Bodhisattvas, a famous mind training text in Tibetan Buddhism, as a tool of mind training in everyday activities.
Lama Dawa Zangmo is a long time student of Tibetan Buddhist teacher H.E. Garchen Rinpoche and in 2009 completed a four year meditation retreat under his direction. She is head of Garchen Rinpoche’s center in Kiev, Ukraine – Drikung Community Ratnashri. Currently living in Toronto she comes periodically to teach at White Lotus Buddhist Center in Rochester. Lama Dawa Zangmo presents Buddhist meditation and mind training exercises in a clear, direct way and with a great loving heart.
