BP: Mahayana Mind Training – Wheel of Sharp Weapons

Dates: Wednesdays Jan 19, 26, Feb 2, 9, 16, 23, Mar 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, Apr 6

The Mahayana path is characterized by the bodhisattva’s aspiration to become a buddha for the sake of all beings. The most radical methods for achieving this are known as lojong – mind training or thought transformation.

The hundred-plus verses of ninth century Dharmarakshita’s Wheel of Sharp Weapons: Effectively Striking the Heart of the Enemy are blunt and clear in showing us how to counteract our real enemies: the self-centeredness that comes from grasping at an independent self.

Since Basic Program study is not just for academic purposes but to ultimately increase our altruistic and kind attitude, it is important and expected that all BP students follow certain conduct guidelines as given in the document available here
