Registration is required for this course. It is not public.
There are hundreds of vows in Buddhism between all the vehicles. Upon entering the path, it may seem daunting to keep them all. Vows are like learning to ride a bike. At first it may seem difficult to do it, but once you are in the habit they happen automatically.
Khentrul Rinpoche will give teachings to help us ascertain the essence of the vows. When we understand the essence then it is easier to keep the full array. He will help us understand how we can use our mind to understand them in degrees and work to keep them all. It may seem confusing as if the Pratimoksa and tantric vows are contradictory. Rinpoche explains the non-contradictory nature of maintaining the vows of the 3 vehicles.
Practical Teaching Includes:
25 Shambhala Warrior Conducts (Kalachakra Vows)
There will be plenty of opportunity for questions, discussions and sharing throughout the day.
Rinpoche will be teaching in English.
Portuguese, Cantonese, and Mandarin. Additional languages may be added. Translations are only available for live attendees.
