On a sunny autumn day, we enjoyed the company of our Sharing the Dharma Day participants. Ven. Jigme gave the talk on developing love and compassion, drawing from the book, An Open-Hearted Life, by Dr. Russell Kolts and Ven. Thubten Chodron.
We rejoiced at Geshe Dadul’s return for teachings on bodhicitta and the last three of the six paramitas or perfections. Drawing from the verses of 11th Century Tibetan Geshe Potowa, Geshe Dadul offered vivid metaphors for understanding the perfections of joyous effort, concentration, and wisdom. In addition to teaching, Geshe-la kindly entertained our questions and ideas in the break times. He left us with inspiration and lots to put into practice.
