How to Train in Awakening for Yourself and Others: The Six Paramitas with Karma Rinchen

Tuesday 29th September, 19:30 – 21:00pm on Zoom


We are very happy to announce this online teaching with one of our visiting teachers, Karma Rinchen of Bodhicharya Caribbean, on the Six Paramitas or Perfections. Rinchen has recently emerged from a 6 month solitary retreat and we are therefore grateful he has accepted our invitation to teach. Please see here for more details about Rinchen.

The Six Paramitas or Perfections are what a Bodhisattva (someone who has committed to Awakening to their full potential for the benefit of all beings and to ultimately help them in their own Awakening) trains in.

The Six Perfections are:

Generosity
Patience
Ethics
Joyful Effort
Concentration
Wisdom

Rinchen will explain the meaning of the Six Paramitas and how to work with them in our life.

The Evening

Meditation
Dharma Talk
