Bodhisattva Vow Prep Class


with Jeffrey Stevens
September 14 / 9:00 AM - September 14 / 12:00 PM

This class is open to ALL who are interested in learning about the Buddhist view of life.


This course is highly recommended if you are planning to take the Bodhisattva Vow at Shambhala Mountain Center (SMC) with Acharya Allyn Lyon on October 5-6, 2013. Please sign up for the vows at SMC HERE.

The Bodhisattva Vow, which is taken at least six months after the Refuge Vow, is a pronouncement that you will travel the path of putting others before yourself as you practice the Six Paramitas, transcendent ways of living that further awaken your inherent goodness. These are generosity, discipline, patience, exertion, meditation, and prajna or transcendent knowing.

After taking this vow, you will be given a name to mark the turning point you are taking by the preceptor.

The Bodhisattva Vow Sourcebook is recommended for this class. SMCD made a "group order" for the recommended Bodhisattva Vow Sourcebook on August 27th and we do not plan to make another group order at this time; however, if you need the Sourcebook, please register but do not proceed to PayPal. In your pre-registration e-mail, you also will receive the link to order your personal copy of the Sourcebook if you wish.
