Residents and guests had another amazing opportunity to receive teachings from esteemed Dharma master Geshe Yeshe Thabkhe. This year, in the fourth year of teaching on this text, Geshe-la completed Chapter 2 of Pramanavarttika by master Dharmakirti. Many students joined the teachings on YouTube. Time and again Dharmakhirti and Geshe la outlined reasonings to show that the wisdom realizing selflessness offers the only way to attain liberation. Now it is up to us to meditate upon it again and again.
The community looks forward to Geshe Dadul Namgyal’s insightful (and fun!) teachings each year. Though he was unable to be here in person, we met via Zoom. Over six days, Geshe la delivered profound teachings on Ven. Lobsang Tayang’s “108 Verses Praising Great Compassion called a Precious Crystal Rosary,” leading us to a deeper appreciation and understanding of great compassion.
Offering service to the Three Jewels in different ways is an essential part of everyday life at Sravasti Abbey. We clean the surrounding forest of overgrowth to protect it from fire and to support its health. We grow vegetables in our community garden, take care of the property’s infrastructure, and much more.
