Making Life Meaningful:
A Commentary on Patience
with Gyurmed Khensur Rinpoche

Friday July 24, 2015 at 5:00 PM EDT
Sunday July 26, 2015 at 3:00 PM EDT

Khensur Rinpoche will be teaching on Chapter 6 (Patience) of Shantideva's "A Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life".

Our lives are filled with so much anger, hatred, and frustration, so why not open your heart to learning the antidotes to these afflictive emotions, and begin applying them to your daily life? Shantideva says,

"If there is a remedy, then what is the use of frustration? If there is no remedy, then what is the use of frustration?"

Attending this retreat led by the incredible Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Jampa will open your eyes and your heart for both your spiritual practice and your daily life.

The text: "A Guide To The Bodhisattva's Way of Life" by Santideva. Translated from the Sanskrit and Tibetan by Vensa A. Wallace and B. Alan Wallace. You can find the text through the FPMT Store at: A Guide To The Bodhisattva's Way of Life

Please note: Khensur Rinpoche will not teach in English. However, our translator Tenzin Gelek, is very skilled in giving Western students a clear and exact understanding of the teachings.

$360 includes meals and accommodations
