The Three Types of Compassion - Nalandabodhi International

The Three Types of Compassion

This summer, Nalandabodhi in Seattle hosts online teachings on Thursdays with Mitra Tyler Dewar. These teachings touch on key topics of Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism.

The talks are open to all and appropriate for all levels of study and practice.

JULY 2:  THE THREE TYPES OF COMPASSION   (REGISTER HERE)

Mitra Tyler will discuss the Mahayana presentation of compassion and in particular the “three types of compassion,” with reference to the famous classical Indian text, Chandrakirti’s Entrance to the Middle Way.

JULY 9:  THE SEVEN CAUSE-AND-EFFECT STAGES OF BODHICITTA   (REGISTER HERE)

Mitra Tyler will lead an exploration of the Mahayana meditation instructions called the “sevenfold cause-and-effect key instruction.” This pithy and powerful group of instructions gives us accessible tools to help us gain traction on the path of bodhicitta.

AUG 6:  THE MEDITATION AND RECITATION OF VAJRASATTVA (TENTATIVE DATE)

Mitra Tyler will present a meditation practice centered upon the symbolic deity Vajrasattva, a figure invoked in order to help practitioners connect with a sense of guidance and inspiration, particularly in relation to the purification of negative actions and obscurations of mind.

All are welcome to attend on zoom!
