 The Perfection of Wisdom

With Ringu Tulku Rinpoche

Tibetan Buddhist Teaching: The Perfection of Wisdom with Ringu Tulku Rinpoche

Thursday June 16th - 3.30 pm

The Six Paramitas are at the heart of all the actions of a bodhisattva, of someone who is training to truly work for others. The sixth is the Perfection of Wisdom, seeing the truth as it is, seeing things as they really are. Four reasons are given as to why we do not see the true enlightened nature of our mind. It is too easy, too near, too good and too deep.
