Buddhist Teachings: 37 Practices of the Bodhisattvas

The Thirty Seven Practices of the Bodhisattva is an excellent master piece composed by Gyalsay Ngulchu Thokme (1295-1369). It is a versified text that His Holiness Dalai Lama teaches at the beginning of most Kalachakra teachings. His Holiness says ‘this text contains the whole Buddhist path in a nutshell’. Lama Choedak Rinpoche, who heard the teaching from HH Dalai Lama in 1971 still carries with him a calligraphed copy of the text. Rinpoche will offer elucidating commentary relevant to the contemporary world on this 15th century Buddhist poetry. This poetry is often on the lips of Lamas and adepts. You will learn profound and practical living skills through compassion and wisdom.
