About the event
Cultivating Compassion With Lama Zangmo
Sat 19 October
10am – 3:30pm
We need to practice the Dharma with a recognition that loving kindness, compassion and wisdom are how we can overcome suffering, how we can benefit ourselves and others.
At the moment we have compassion and some degree of kindness but it is very partial, limited and conditional. It only goes to a few people who are close to us. We find it very hard to love those who are not kind to us, who don’t benefit us in some way or other. We need to cultivate a pure motivation of wishing to reach enlightenment for the benefit of all beings.
Bodhicitta is compared to a philosopher’s stone. It is said that when it touches any other substance it can change that substance into pure gold. In the same way a pure motivation can transform suffering and negative experiences of beings into great happiness.
Lama Zangmo will go through the different aspects of bodhicitta, loving kindness and compassion and how to cultivate a pure motivation. The day will include instructions and time for meditation.
This day can be attended on its own or as a part of the monthly Introduction to Buddhism series. Other dates in this series are: 6 April; 4 May; 8 June; 13 July; 14 September; and 19 October 2024.
