Bodhisattva Action Retreat
Transforming the Mind, Transforming the World: Methods to Act as Transformative Agents in Personal and Professional Life
We all experience disappointments, fatigue, anguish, and loneliness in our daily lives, personally or at work. Sometimes we think of giving up and putting everything on hold... Due to our ingrained habits of self-centeredness and trying to change the world around us, we generate negative emotions, suffering, and difficulties.
In the Bodhisattva Action Retreat, Lama Tsering teaches how to act wisely in situations like these. The path begins with a change of mindset: we have to pay attention to the way we act and react when facing different circumstances, instead of wanting to change the world or those around us. In Mahayana Buddhism, we are inspired by the figure of the Bodhisattva, a being who vows to liberate him or herself in order to then liberate all other beings from suffering. It may seem like an unattainable ideal, but change is possible, and you can start now, step by step.
