Tulku Migmar Tsering: The 37 Bodhisattva Practices

December 5, 2021 @ 9:00 am 11:00 am

Samye Institute is pleased to announce that Tulku Migmar Tsering will begin a new teaching series dedicated to Gyalse Tokme Zangpo’s 37 Bodhisattva Practices. This teaching series has been generously sponsored by the Vietnamese Sangha. 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 teaching series is scheduled to take place over ten sessions, where Tulku-la will gently guide us through the text, explaining the deep and subtle meanings of this profound work.

You can access the root text of the 37 Bodhisattva Practices at Lotsawa House here. This text does not require transmission or empowerment to read and study. Students can catch up on any teachings they missed through recordings posted on Samye Institute.

Session Two: December 5th, 9AM (Kathmandu Time, see other time zones here).

Tulku-la will be teaching in Tibetan, with live translation into English, Vietnamese, Thai, and Indonesian. Recordings of Tulku-la’s teachings will be made available on YouTube and on the Samye Institute website after each session.

Please register for this teaching here.

Note: This teaching has been canceled. Please join us for Tulku-la’s teaching next week on December 12th at 9AM Kathmandu Time.
