Kindness in Action: The Six Practices of a Bodhisattva

A Bodhisattva is a compassionate warrior, willing to do battle with his or her own negativity in order to be more effective in helping others.  The teachings on the main practices of a Bodhisattva, known as the six perfections, provide us with inspiring and practical guidelines to lead the most joyful and beneficial life. If each of us can bring out this hero within us, we can bring enormous relief and transformation to our world.

A New Perspective
Our instinct is to approach life from a self-centered perspective, but Buddha explained that for as long as we do so we will never solve our problems or experience real happiness. In this series we will explore the meditations on love and cherishing others that allow us to step out of our obsessive self-concern, and in this way to open up radically new solutions to our daily problems.

May 18 – A new perspective

June 1 – The true meaning of life

June 15 – All you need is love

The Healing Power of Compassion 
We all want to become a better person and have the ability to help others, but often we can feel discouraged and feel that real change isn’t possible. Through the practice of Taking and Giving we learn to let go of our negative states of mind and start identifying with our compassionate peaceful nature.
