ACI Course 11 is the second in a three-part series based on “A Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life” (Bodhisattvacharya Avatara) by Master Shantideva (700 AD), and the commentary “Entry Point for Children of the Victorious Buddhas” (Gyalse Juk-ngok) by Gyaltsab Je (1364-1432).  

Join Tahiya Knapp, for the 2nd installation of the 3-part series on How to find more joy in your life.  Topics include: an explanation of the perfection of patience, the perfection of joyful effort, and the perfection of meditative concentration; the results of anger; how to make a habit of not getting angry; how joyous effort supports the other five perfections; obstacles to joyous effort; obstacles to meditation; how selfishness produces pain; reasons to treat others as well as yourself; the source of all the world’s pain; compassion as a prerequisite for successful meditative concentration; meditation as a prerequisite for wisdom; where you, your world, and all of your experiences come from; and Buddha nature.

It is recommended, but not necessary that you study Part I prior to studying Part II.

In keeping with the ACI lineage, all teachings are offered free of charge.  Questions? Contact our Program Director:
