About Dharma Discourses:
Dharma Discourses is a unique class where students take turns speaking on a Dharma topic for eight minutes. We are currently working our way through Shantideva’s text “the Way of the Bodhisattva”. Each week students study and prepare to speak on 3 verses. We have found this class to be a highly effective way to learn about the Dharma. Students are therefore encouraged to participate, though newcomers are welcome to observe.
Verses for week 36 (Saturday 5 September 2020)
Chapter 7: Diligence 11-13
And if you are so scared while still alive,
Like fishes writhing on the open ground,
What need to speak of pain unbearable
In hells created by past evil deeds?
The hells in which the boiling molten bronze
Will burn your body, tender like a baby’s flesh –
All is now prepared, your former deeds have done it!
How can you lie back, so free of care?
Much harm will come to those with small forbearance,
Who wish to have the fruit without endeavor.
Seized by death, they’ll cry out like the gods.
“Alas I fall, by pain and sorrow crushed.”
Transcribing Rinpoche’s talks and meditations:
Rinpoche’s talk on Shantideva’s verses usually extends for an hour or more and students are invited to transcribe the talk. Also, we are compiling transcripts of Rinpoche’s 45-minute meditations and students are asked to help with this. Transcripts can be typed, or hand-written and scanned.
