 Taking Bodhisattva Precepts

July 7, 2019 @ 10:15 am - 2:00 pm PDT


Ceremony with Ven. Thubten Chodron as Preceptor

For Dharma students who have formally taken refuge and are ready to take the bodhisattva precepts, Ven. Chodron will offer aspiring and engaging bodhicitta precepts during the Manjushri Retreat, on Sunday morning July 7.
If you are not attending the retreat, you must write a formal request to receive the precepts and submit it to the Abbey office by July 1.
If your request is accepted, you may arrive at the Abbey by 10:15 for the ceremony at 10:45. Preceptees are invited to stay for lunch. Please respect that you will be entering a silent retreat and maintain the silence during your visit.
To prepare, study the bodhisattva precepts and the accompanying practice commitments in Pearl of Wisdom Book II (the red prayer book). This links to a series of teachings Ven. Chodron gave on the topic in 2011-2012.
