The bodhisattva vow is the commitment to put others before oneself. It is a statement of willingness to give up one’s own well-being, even one’s own enlightenment, for the sake of others. And a bodhisattva is simply a person who lives in the spirit of that vow, perfecting the qualities known as the six paramitas [perfections]—generosity, discipline, patience, exertion, meditation, and transcendental knowledge—in his effort to liberate beings.

This one day class is an opportunity to learn more about the vow, to ask questions and discuss why one would take the vow. In order to take the bodhisattva vow, one must have taken the refuge vow at least 6 months prior.

Recommended text: Copies of The Bodhisattva Vow Sourcebook will be available for $25.
