Lama Padma will illuminate the line-by-line meaning of Shantideva’s “The Way of the Bodhisattva”, enabling us to read and reread each chapter and find a deeper and deeper meaning.

We will be using the Shambhala Publication, Revised Edition of “The Way of the Bodhisattva” – which is available at Tibetan Treasures.  Be prepared to take notes.  The teachings may take one year to complete.
