Six Perfections with Geshe Dadul Namgyal

September 21 @ 3:00 pm - September 25 @ 2:00 pm PDT

Geshe Dadul Namgyal

Geshe Dadul Teaches the Six Perfections

The six paramitas —sometimes translated as the six perfections or six far-reaching practices—are the practices by which bodhisattvas progress on the path to Buddhahood. We are delighted that Geshe Dadul Namgyal returns to teach on them—generosity, ethical conduct, fortitude, joyous effort, concentration and wisdom—in his own, inspiring way.

Geshe Dadul writes, “Be inspired by the bodhisattva practices of the paramitas. Explore their depth and breadth. Of course, through the joyful medium of metaphors and analogies.”

Geshela take us on a  journey exploring the dynamics of the paramita practices of the bodhisattvas by shedding light on them through the medium of metaphors and analogies, so that we could bring a touch of richness and sophistication in our own daily opportunities of engaging in the paramitas

Geshe Dadul’s teaching style is lively and interactive and his English is superb.

Geshe Dadul is a prominent scholar. He holds a Geshe Lharampa degree (doctorate) in Buddhism and Philosophy from the Drepung Monastic University and a Master’s degree in English Literature from Panjab University in India. Geshe-la is an author, professor, translator, and has served as auxiliary interpreter for His Holiness and Dalai Lama. He is now involved with Drepung Loseling Monastery-Emory University partnership where he is preparing a six-year curriculum in Modern Science for Tibetan monasteries and nunneries.
