The Bodhisattva Vows Ceremony
A Supreme Good Heart
Out of a supreme good heart of compassion for others we become determined to do whatever it takes to alleviate and free every one of them from suffering. From those we are close to, to those we have not yet met.
Realizing that we can accomplish this only by becoming the best we can be, an enlightened being, we simply decide this is how we shall use our precious human life. There is no higher purpose we can aspire to.
We become a Bodhisattva by taking Bodhisattva vows and engaging in the practices of the Six Perfections just like countless others who have gone before.
Gen Kelsang Tilopa will grant the Bodhisattva vows in this special ceremony and give a commentary on the Six Perfections the altruistic practices of Bodhisattvas.
Cost: adults $25; seniors and students $20
Location: Kadampa Meditation Center, 528 East Boulevard. Charlotte 28203
