Ken McLeod, known for his ability to shine light on the most subtle and difficult of dharma teachings (see his Dharma Talk and essay on the Ganges Mahamudra if in doubt) will lead us in an exploration of the 37 Practices of the Bodhisattva. Based in Los Angeles, Ken is the executive director of Unfettered Mind, “a place for those whose path in practice lies outside established centers and institutions.”

37 Practices of the Bodhisattva Introduction

You who see that experience has no coming or going,
Yet pour your energy solely into helping beings,
My excellent teachers and Lord All Seeing,
I humbly and constantly honor with my body, speech, and mind.

The fully awake, the buddhas, source of joy and well-being,
All come from integrating the noble Way.
Because integration depends on your knowing how to practice,
I will explain the practice of all bodhisattvas.
