Retreat on the Ten Perfections with Tempa Lama – part II

Khungdzong Wodsel Ling, 1977 N. New Hampshire Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90027
Saturday July 7, 10am-5pm and Sunday July 8, 10am -4pm

The Ten Perfections are a core practice on the path of compassionate beings. The basis of the path of compassionate beings is the recognition of the interdependent nature of all beings. The practice of the Perfections helps us actualize this recognition so that all our actions are truly beneficial for ourselves and others. Through relying on the practice of the Perfections, the virtuous qualities of the mind of awakening arise in us and become the skillful means for clearing obscurations.

Tempa Dukte Lama will continue the teachings begun last year on each of the Ten Perfections. He will guide participants in exploring how we can actualize the Perfections in our lives. Participants will learn and explore how to cultivate the awakened qualities of generosity, morality, patience, effort, concentration, power, compassion, aspiration, skillful means, and discriminating wisdom, and manifest them as skillful means to transform their life and the lives of others.

Attendance of last year’s retreat is not required! The retreat will begin with an introduction and summary of last year’s content.

Tempa Dukte Lama is an ordained lama of the Tibetan Bon tradition. He is the founder and spiritual director of Olmo Ling Bon Center and Institute in Pittsburgh, PA, and co-founder of Humla Fund.
