Thubten Chödron is renowned for her extraordinary ability to present even the most profound spiritual teachings in a way that is easily understood and practiced by Westerners.
With her characteristic warmth and humor, she skillfully weaves together traditional teachings with heartfelt advice for modern students. In this course Ven. Chödron will give teachings on a key text of Mahayana Buddhism: The Wheel of Sharp Weapons by Dharmaraksita, a teacher of Atisha. This poetic text strikes at the heart of the real trouble makers in our lives: ignorance and self-cherishing.
It holds up a mirror to show us how we are the creator of our own suffering, and of our happiness too. If you have ever asked yourself ‘Why does this happen to me?’, The Wheel of Sharp Weapons will shed light on this question. Through learning that specific results are caused by specific actions, we begin to understand the reasons for our experiences and what we need to do if we want the unhappiness and dissatisfaction to stop. We are exceptionally fortunate to be hosting Ven. Chödron at Chenrezig Institute.
