Humbleness and Heroism on the Path of Wakefulness, The Way of the Bodhisattva
Please join the Westchester Meditation Center for this very special event with Venerable Ringu Tulku Rinpoche, who will speak on Humbleness and Heroism on the Path of Wakefulness, The Way of the Bodhisattva, open to all, but space is limited.
The practitioner of Mahayana Buddhism aspires to become a Bodhisattva – one who dedicates their life to the enlightenment of all sentient beings. Pursuing this goal requires the courage and strength to go beyond all personal boundaries and limitations, and at the same time, the willingness to constantly put the welfare of others before one’s own. Yet, sometimes our attempts to balance humbleness and heroism on the path of wakefulness leave us ineffective, mistaken, or create more difficulties, despite our best efforts. With a genuine understanding of The Way of the Bodhisattva, the Venerable Ringu Tulku is especially equipped to inspire our awakened hearts and minds and share his wisdom on how we can maintain these qualities in harmony.
Ringu Tulku Rinpoche is a Tibetan Buddhist teacher of the Kagyu lineage. He was trained by many great teachers including H.H. the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa and Dilgo Khyentse, Rinpoche.
