Venue: Samye Ling
Â The core values and practices of Mahayana Buddhism are the six â€śparamitasâ€ť - they are generosity, skilful conduct, forbearance, diligence, meditative stability and deep wisdom. In essence they are the cultivation of wisdom and compassion and they can be seen as a step-by-step graduated path to a contented and beneficial life.Â

The aim of this weekend is to understand what the â€śparamitasâ€ť are and how practising them can help us live with joy in a difficult world. They are also very relevant to putting mindfulness training in an ethical and social context.Â
Clive will provide background material on the structure and detail of the six "paramitas" and how they work together. Practical meditation exercises will be shared.Â
There is no fee for this course although donations are welcome. Your offering will help with the Monastery's considerable running costs, as well as the expenses incurred in inviting teachers.Â Donations may be made in the Reception Office.Tariff and Charges Guest Info
