Meditations to Cultivate Patience

Date: Tuesday, March 6, 20

Time: 7:00-9:00

Location: 560 Front Street West, Toronto, (meeting room)

How can we respond more skilfully when faced with frustration and conflict? We can cultivate and perfect patience through the practice of training the mind. Geshe Samdup will be teaching practical meditations on developing the perfection of paticence. He will also be giving commentary on patience from the 6th chapter of Shantideva’s  Bodhisattvacharyavatara, A Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life. These writings are considered to be the “pinnacle of writing" on the subject of patience in Buddhist texts.

 

“Patience in Buddhism is a powerful practice that doesn’t mean we simply tolerate things, but that we actively work on our mind to make sure it doesn’t fall victim to disturbing emotions. Patience gives us the strength to work to benefit both ourselves and others, and is one of the factors that propels us toward liberation and enlightenment.” Dr. Alexander Berzin

We continue every other Tuesday in Toronto. In the past weeks Gesha-la has taught us meditation practices and given very practical advice on the current topic. His teachings have been very engaging, easy tok relate to and sprinkled with humour.
