Asian Classics Institute Course 4: Proof of Future Lives
Begins Thursday May 16th
7:30pm to 9:30pm
12 Weeks

Donations Appreciated.

We share this world with billions of other humans, animals and insects. Every single creature is having a different experience of the same time and place. What is a valid perception then? What lies beyond individual experience? What makes us Human?

Topics include: valid Perception, beyond direct perception, developing great compassion, the nature of omniscience, the material cause of the mind, proofs of the mind's source, proofs for the existence of past and future lives, and how desire leads to rebirth.

Developing the Good Heart Benefiting All: The 37 Practices of the Bodhisattva



Saturday, April 14, 5:30 pm

Thirty-Seven Practices of the Bodhisattvas is an important lojong text by Gyalsé Tokmé Zangpo written in 14th-century Tibet. In thirty-seven verses, it gives instructions on how to follow the bodhisattva way of life of compassion, of finding and maintaining the good heart benefiting others. Tibetan masters have said that the Eight Verses of Training the Mind represents the short version of lojong, the Thirty-Seven Practices is the medium, and the Bodhicharyavatara is the extensive version.

It is said that Tokmé Zangpo was able fully to take upon himself the suffering of others and to give them his well-being, and without any expectation as to the result. He met buddhas and deities such as Avalokiteshvara and Tara face to face. He taught many of the greatest teachers of his time in Central Tibet. He passed away at the age of 74 amidst wondrous signs of realization.

We hope that you'll be able to attend this wonderful class and meet our honored guest Geshe Tashi Dorje from Seramey monastery.

Donations Appreciated!

ACI X: A Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life, Part I, Tuesdays at 7pm, Beginning Feb 7

A GUDE TO THE

BODHISATTVA'S

WAY OF LIFE

{ PART 1 }

How do we deal with all the suffering in the world? And how do we behave in a loving and compassionate way to those around us when our mind is upset and afflicted? Through love, caring and compassion-this is the training of a Bodhisattva. 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 this classic ancient work is considered the best book ever written to learn to live as a bodhisattva.

We will cover the benefits of being a bodhisattva, how to collect the causes to develop true loving compassion, development of the recollection and the watchfulness required to think and act like a bodhisattva, and removing existing obstacles that prevent our attainment of true bodhichitta. In part one of The Guide, we explore the six perfections as the basis for living as a bodhisattva and especially the perfection of giving and the perfection of an ethical way of life.

John Stilwell is a former director of the Asian Classics Institute (ACI), Godstow Retreat Center, and was General Manger of Land of Medicine Buddha. He is an executive and father who began teaching yoga 20 years ago, and has taught Buddhist sutra and tantra in the tradition of Je Tsongkapa for 15 years with a contemporary perspective highly relevant to daily life. John received transmission of the 18 Courses from Arya Sumati Dharmadhara, Geshe Michael Roach.

Friday November 27th
5:30pm to 7:00pm
Taught by Venerable Nyingpo
at The Three Jewels

Clear Thinking is the art of figuring out logically how to get what we want. There are techniques that you can learn to prove to yourself how you can effectively bring about the results you're after guaranteed, every time.

To learn these techniques we're going to use a book by Kedrup Je, one of the main disciples of Je Tsongkapa. He wrote a wonderful book on logic called Clearing the Darkness from Your Mind. So that's what we're going to do: clear away our misconceptions so we can think clearly and make choices that will bring us everything we can dream of and more.
