The Bodhisattva Vows Retreat

January 16 - January 18, 2015

with Venerable Tenzin Chogkyi

A bodhisattva is a being who has generated the wish to become enlightened in order to bring all living beings also to enlightenment. Venerable Tenzin Chogkyi will review the role of bodhicitta and the bodhisattva vows along the path to enlightenment. She will explain in detail the eighteen root and forty-six secondary bodhisattva vows. As well as include an explanation of the four factors needed to break bodhisattva root vows, how bodhisattva vows are lost, how to keep your bodhisattva vows, how to restore your bodhisattva vows, and the benefits of keeping bodhisattva vows.

Everyone is welcome to this retreat whether you have taken the bodhisattva vows, or not.
