    Buddhism is practiced by hundreds of millions of people worldwide, from Tibetan caves to forest kutis to Chinese temples. Even for practicing Buddhists, it might be difficult to see what the different traditions all have in common.

    Teachings in Mexico

    Venerable Thubten Chodron will give commentary on Chapter 6 of Shantideva’s classic text, A Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life through all the teachings in Mexico. These will be streamed live on Facebuda.

    This series of teachings covers a variety of Buddhist methods for working with disturbing emotions that arise when we are faced with difficulties, not by falling into depression or striking out at the world, but by framing the situation differently. No matter what our religion, learning to work with adverse situations is essential for all beings.
