A series of five free Zoom teachings with Tempa Dukte Lama

Saturdays 10-11:30am ET, May 30, June 6, June 13, June 20, June 27

The Ten Perfections are the heart practices of compassionate beings. They are virtuous practices through which we cultivate and develop the skill to transcend the self and express compassion in the actions of our body, speech, and mind.

The Ten Perfections are divided into five causal Perfections and five fruitional Perfections. Through the causal Perfections we develop the qualities of heart and mind that help us transcend the self and become a compassionate being. With the fruitional Perfections we cultivate the skillful means to help and meet the needs of others.

In this series of teachings Tempa Lama will guide, teach, and reflect on the Five Causal Perfections of generosity, wholesome conduct, patience, effort, and mindful concentration.


Pre-registration is required for this series of free online teachings. Register here. Following each teaching, registered participants will receive a weekly email with reflections to support them in understanding and integrating that week’s perfection into their practice and lives. To study the Ten Perfections more deeply, we encourage you to purchase Tempa Lama’s book on the Ten Perfections here.
