Six Perfections with Geshe Dadul Namgyal
September 21 @ 3:00 pm - September 25 @ 2:00 pm PDT
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.

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.
