When Geshe Jampa Gyaltsen was firs invited to teach at TBI by our Teacher, the late Kyabje Khensur Kangyur Lama Jetsun Losang thubten Rinpoche, he expressed the wish to teach Śāntideva’s Bodhicaryāvatāra (“Engaging in the Behavior of the Bodhisattvas”) which he had memorised when he was a young monk and which was very close to his heart. Khensur Rinpoche agreed but he suggested, however, that as a prelude he should teach the Lam Rim in detail, which he has done for almost 10 years.
The time has come, at last, for Geshe-la to teach the totality of Śāntideva’s Bodhicaryāvatāra which he will do during the Wednesday class dedicated to general Buddhist teachings.
The Bodhicaryāvatāra is the main text H.H. the Dalai Lama relies upon when teaching general audiences. This marvelous work describes the practice of Bodhisattvas from both the method and wisdom aspect of the path: each stanza provides both short-term solace and lasting spiritual sustenance.
It is not easy to receive a complete transmission and teachings on this great work by a Lharampa Geshe who has made it the center of his personal practice and we hope many Australian students will attend!
