Lama Rigzin is visiting to continue his teaching on the Bodhissatvas Way of Life. He will be teaching Chapter 8 on Concentration.
Chapter 8 (Samten Tenpa) is one of the most important chapters of the Bodhisattvas Way of Life because it recognises our ordinary and ever distracted mindset as a source of suffering and bewilderment. It inspires us to awaken a stable mentality (samten) by developing a strong altruistic intention through meditations such as exchange of oneself for others as well as tranquil abiding.
The books author Great Master Shantideva presents clear and graphic guidance on the noble path Bodhissatvas must tread. His assertion is that true and great happiness arises from altruistic intention and wise actions. Alternatively recognising that ignorance and self cherishing create suffering and sadness.
Lama Rigzin has been studying texts such as these from childhood as a monk. He is now integrating these teachings into his life as a layperson , Buddhist teacher ,translator and father.
