Labor Day Weekend Retreat: Perfection of Ethics

September 2 @ 4:00 pm - September 5 @ 12:00 pm PDT

Abbess teaches Buddhism.

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.

Register here to attend in person.
