Labor Day Weekend Retreat: Perfection of Ethics
September 2 @ 4:00 pm - September 5 @ 12:00 pm PDT
A 3-day retreat with Venerable Thubten Chodron
The Six Perfections: Ethics
The six perfections—also translated as the six far-reaching practices or the six paramitas in Sanskrit — describe the methods that bodhisattvas transform their minds into the mind of a buddha, a fully awakened one. These six practices are generosity, ethical conduct, fortitude or patience, joyous effort, concentration, and wisdom. Last year’s retreat focused on generosity, and this year will focus on the perfection of ethical conduct.
In person and online.
