The perfection of effort
This course taught by Gen Delek is following the book Meaningful to Behold which is a commentary to the powerful and much-loved poem, Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life by the 8th century Buddhist master, Shantideva.
Many people have the compassionate wish to benefit others, but few understand how to accomplish this successfully in daily life. Bodhisattvas are friends of the world, who have such strong compassion that they are able to transform all their daily activities into ways of benefiting others. This practical handbook is essential for those wishing to follow a way of life characterised by greater empathy and compassion for others.
This term we will be looking at the chapter on how to develop a joyful mind of effort.
The classes will begin again on Sunday, February 7th.
