Meaningful to behold is a commentary to the exquisite and universally loved poem Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life by the 8th century master Shantideva. A Bodhisattva is a being bound for spiritual enlightenment and is regarded as a friend of the world. With unsurpassed clarity, the author Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, explains how to transform contemporary life into the Bodhisattva’s path.

By joining the foundation study program now you will:

  •  Improve your life through cultivating authentic love and compassion.
  • Learn how to genuinely benefit others.
  •   Transform your life into the highway to enlightenment.
From the book:

“Nowadays, with the world in turmoil, there is a particular need for Westerners to cultivate bodhichitta. If we are to make it through these perilous times, true Bodhisattvas must appear in the West as well as in the East.”

 Joining the program involves studying the entire book and attending all classes, one of which is an end-of-term exam. Each class consists of prayers, guided meditation and teaching.
