“Just as all the Buddhas of the past

Have brought forth the awakened mind,

And in the precepts of the Bodhisattvas

Step-by-step adobe and trained,

Likewise, for the benefit of beings,

I will bring to birth the awakened mind,

And in those precepts, step-by-step,

I will abide and train myself.”

- Embracing Bodhicitta Conduct by Shantideva

Vows are a skillful means to create enormous karma, the guiding lamppost of our journey, and a driving force to bring sincere practitioners all the way to awakening. Everything, whatever we are experiencing, comes from karma. Therefore, we need Vows, this heart commitment with internal integrity to walk on this awakening path. The spiritual path starts with Refuge Vows, the foundation of all the journeys that follow - the fearless heart of the Bodhisattva journey and the amazing allay of the Tantric journey. And yet, Vows and commitments are one of the most undervalued subjects of our Buddhist practice in the West.


Join us for this potent Dakini’s Whisper Teaching Series! Khandro-la will uncover sequentially, and sometimes provocatively, our Buddhist vows that were originally laid out in Indian and clarified in the Tibetan tradition. We will be guided into meaningful inquiries of how to bring the practice of Vows into our daily lives.
