      Weekly Buddhism Class Series: "The Way of the Bodhisattva"

      Ever wonder how you can most effectively help others? How do you generate unconditional compassion for all living beings? Most of all, how do you live and practice generosity and giving in your everyday life? Sign up now for the weekly class with Khenpo Paljor Gyatso  at the Pure Land of Iowa Buddhist Center on the sacred text of "The Way of the Bodhisattva" by Shantideva, where we will discuss those questions. Please bring your own copy of the text. You can find it here on Amazon: About the text:Treasured by Buddhists of all traditions, The Way of the Bodhisattva (Bodhicharyavatara) is a guide to cultivating the mind of enlightenment, and to generating the qualities of love, compassion, generosity, and patience. This text has been studied, practiced, and expounded upon in an unbroken tradition for centuries, first in India, and later in Tibet. Presented in the form of a personal meditation in verse, it outlines the path of the Bodhisattvas—those who renounce the peace of individual enlightenment and vow to work for the liberation of all beings and to attain buddhahood for their sake.
