The 37 Bodhisattva Practices: Session 1

In this series, generously sponsored by Samye’s Vietnamese Sangha, Tulku Migmar Tsering teaches on Gyalse Tokme Zangpo’s 37 Bodhisattva Practices. This beautiful text encapsulates the bodhisattva ideal in a series of 37 pith aphorisms relating to all elements of the Mahayana view, meditation, and conduct. 

This series is scheduled to run over ten sessions, where Tulku-la will gently guide us through the text, explaining the deep and subtle meanings of this profound work.

  1. Hi Samye Monastery,

    I was wondering how to see the recording of 37 Bodhisttava Practices session 2, with Tulku Migmar Tsering, ?

    I missed it due to mistaking the correct time in Australia. (Silly me!)

    Cheers,

    Cathi
