Abbey Life in Early October

October started off with brilliant skies, a beautiful but very early snow, and wonderful guests who enriched our community with laughter and joy. We also enjoyed Ven. Chodron’s return from her short trip to New York and London.

Sharing the Dharma Day — October

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.

September was an active month with many diverse activities and weather conditions. See for yourself!

Geshe Dadul Namgyal on the Six Perfections — September

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.
