The Bodhisattva Vow Ceremony

with Ashe Acharya John Rockwell

December 30th

    Room: Decatur
     

    The bodhisattva vow is the commitment to put others before oneself. It is a statement of willingness to give up one’s own well-being, even one’s own enlightenment, for the sake of others. And a bodhisattva is simply a person who lives in the spirit of that vow, perfecting the qualities known as the six paramitas [perfections]—generosity, discipline, patience, exertion, meditation, and transcendental knowledge—in his effort to liberate beings.

     Although there is no fee for this program, there is a preceptor's heart gift as well as a Bodhisattva gift that is given during the vow. A personal interview with Acharya Rockwell will take place on Sunday, December 29 between 1-2pm.
