Description

"Patience is the highest form of spiritual practice." -The Buddha (Dhp 184)

Throughout life we often encounter difficult people - people who challenge our capacity for tolerance, empathy, and kindness. During this retreat, Ven. Losang Drimay will guide us through a series of methods from Shantideva's "Guide to the Bodhisattva Way of Life" designed to help us develop the boundless patience necessary for our practice.

ABOUT THE TEACHER:

Venerable Losang Drimay was born in California in 1960. She has a B.A. in Asian Studies and has traveled extensively in Asia. She has been studying and practicing at Dharma centers since 1984, and in 1991 received ordination in the FPMT lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. From 2001 to 2012, she served as resident teacher of Ocean of Compassion Buddhist Center in California. Since then she has served full-time as a resident teacher at Land of Medicine Buddha.
