The Bodhisattva Vow - A Talk and Discussion

with Irene Woodard
February 27 / 6:00 PM - February 27 / 9:00 PM

"There is a mind that needs to be awakened, but it also needs to mind—it needs to involve its heart. This is how the bodhisattva engages with the world."—Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche

What does it mean to take the Bodhisattva Vow?

Join teacher Irene Woodard for an evening of teaching and discussion about the bodhisattva vow. Bring your questions!

All are invited, particularly those who are contemplating taking the Bodhisattva Vow on 3/29 weekend. After taking refuge, the Bodhisattva Vow is a further extension of one's personal commitment to be of ongoing benefit to others.

If you can't make it right at 6pm please come when you can!

Please note: a traditional Teacher's Gift will be collected for Ms. Woodard.

Suggested reading: The Bodhisattva Vow Sourcebook (copies are available at the center bookstore).
