Meditation workshop: The Bodhisattva’s path – Becoming a modern-day warrior
In summary: Learn how meditation can help you improve your good qualities for the benefit of all.
The Bodhisattva’s path: Becoming a modern-day warrior
What does it mean to be a courageous person? According to Buddhism, it is someone who has abandoned all self-concern to become compassionate and wise for the benefit of all. Such a person is known on the Buddhist path as a “Bodhisattva.”
In this final workshop of the year (and last until spring 2017), we will examine the good qualities of a Bodhisattva and the methods by which we can develop those qualities ourself in the context of our busy, modern life. It will be divided into two one-hour sessions: the first will focus on how to improve our compassion, and the second on how to develop our wisdom. Both sessions will draw from the classic text “Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life” by the eighth century Buddhist Master, Shantideva.
Since we all wish to find lasting peace and happiness, the step-by-step meditations we will learn in this workshop are open to and effective for everyone, irrespective of whether we regard ourselves a Buddhist or not. This means that anyone who attends will be able to take away a practical toolkit for enjoying a happy, meaningful life filled with positivity. What a wonderful way to spend the afternoon!
The workshop will be based on teachings from the renowned Buddhist Master, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, founder of the New Kadampa Tradition. It will be led by Matt Lucas, a native English-speaker based in the Kansai region, who has been practising Buddhist meditation for over fifteen years.
Everyone is warmly welcomed, including non-native speakers and people of all spiritual inclinations, as well as those with no spiritual background and complete beginners.
The workshop will be held in a yoga studio near Umeda. Not only is the central location easily accessible, but it is also a perfect space conducive to meditation. Come and join us in this oasis of peace in the heart of the city!
