Tibetan Buddhist Monk and Kachen (head abbot) of the Tashi Lhunpo Monastery Khen Rinpoche Lobzang Tsetan
Buddhist Path of Love: The Six Perfections as the Job Description of a Bodhisattva.
The Mahayana Buddhist tradition, including that of Tibet, emphasizes that one’s spiritual practice ought to embrace effective tools for enhancing empathy, compassion and love. This is not only to bring benefit to others but because these qualities enrich our own lives as well. One of their core models of practice is a symphony of engagements known as the “Six Perfections,” which are: Generosity, Good Conduct, Patience, Joyous Effort, Meditation and Wisdom. Khen Rinpoche will present the Buddhist vision of how combined cultivation of these skills -- in the midst of our daily and busy lives -- can bring richness of intention and the beauty of inter-connectedness into all that we do.
