A Meaningful Life – with Bodhisattva Vow Ceremony

Sat 26 Oct 10:30am-4:30pm 
£20 includes a light vegetarian lunch
(50% discount for Gold Card Holders)

Find out how to awaken your Buddha nature and achieve the real meaning of human life; the attainment of enlightenment. 

A Bodhisattva is a person who, motivated by great compassion, has developed the mind of bodhichitta; a spontaneous wish to attain enlightenment for the sake of all living beings.

On this special course we will learn how to develop this precious mind of bodhichitta and engage in the Bodhisattva’s way of life; the practice of the perfections of giving, moral discipline, patience, effort, concentration, and wisdom.

In the afternoon a special Bodhisattva Vow Ceremony will give people the opportunity to enter the Mahayana path to enlightenment, becoming like a son or daughter of Buddha. By taking the Bodhisattva Vow we promise to follow the Bodhisattva’s way of life to the best of our ability. This vow will ensure the swift attainment of enlightenment for whoever takes it. It is said that whoever takes the Bodhisattva Vow and keeps it purely will constantly be creating positive energy day and night, even while asleep; making every moment of our life meaningful!
