Upcoming Program and Events

Mitra Tyler Dewar

Relative Bodhicitta Meditations

May 17-19th

peonies

Join us for a program of talks and guided meditation sessions led by Mitra Tyler Dewar. Tyler will present pithy teachings and provide meditation techniques for two sets of relative bodhicitta meditations: the “four immeasurables” and the “seven cause-and-effect stages of bodhicitta.”

The four immeasurables focus on developing—in a step-by-step way that honors and does not push us away from the place we are in right now—unconditional love, compassion, joy, and impartiality in relation to ourselves and others, all sentient beings. The seven cause-and-effect stages of bodhicitta provide a contemplative framework for gradually developing and sustaining the wish to achieve awakening for the benefit of others. Joined with the wisdom that investigates reality and its nature, bodhicitta becomes the main engine of the path to awakening according to the Mahayana tradition. Doing bodhicitta meditations such as the ones we will do here provide an opportunity to make bodhicitta more experience-based and evident in our day-to-day lives.

Schedule:
May 17-19th
Friday night 7-8:30pm.
Saturday 10am-noon and 2-4pm
Sunday 1-3pm.

Cost:
Friday night $20
Weekend: Members $75

AND, SPEAKING OF FUND RAISING!

 

Dear Nalandabodhi members and Friends,

I just enrolled in the new version of King Soopers Community Rewards program! This is a fast and easy way for Nalandabodhi to benefit every time you use your King Soopers card. In the past we had to use a gift card and refill it, now it is much easier, once enrolled you just swipe you KS card when shopping and it is all automatic from there. You will still get your discounts on items and still get gas points. This program could greatly help us with rent increases and expenses. I am encouraging everyone to pass this on to friends and family so they can support our center and our offerings to the community! Membership in Nalandabodhi is not required and no one will be contacted by us. It only took me a few minutes to enroll, so please do it soon!  After you set up an account you will see and account summary and to the left of that click on community rewards and search for Nalandabodhi. Once you click on us you are all done! Thanks to all for taking part in this!

Mahayana Study Course

Paramitas, Paths and Fruition

Tuesdays, starting May 14 from 7:00 to 8:30

tomass-buddha-1.2

Our next Mahayana class is entitled “Paramitas, Paths and Fruition” otherwise known and “Paths and Bhumis”.  We will have a in depth discussion of the 6 paramitas of generosity, discipline, patience, exertion, meditation(dhyana) and insight(prajna). The five Paths and how they develop merit and wisdom and lead to complete enlightenment will be covered. The ten Bhumis or the ten grounds of awakening which include the Paths of Seeing and Meditation are essential Mahayana teachings on the realizations of the Bodhisattvas and how they become Buddhas. This might sound heady, but the text by The Dzogchen Ponlop, Rinpoche puts great focus on how these teaching can benefit us in daily life and in ourpractice of meditation.

Members of the public and other Sanghas are welcome to come and join in.

Date/Time:  7 to 8:30 pm on Tuesdays starting May 14th and runs for 6 classes.
Cost:   $65 for members, $75 for  non-members and the text will run $15.  If you have taken the class before you may retake it for free.  If you have questions or concerns about the cost please contact Steve Bruden.  We want everyone who is interested to be able to come.
