Additional Practices

In addition to the core practices of calm abiding and insight meditation, Bodhi Path centers teach additional contemplative practices that help support our path of training the mind. These practices help us purify negative actions, habitual veils and karmic obscurations; accumulate merit; develop compassion; and dedicate the merits of our positive actions for the benefit of all beings.

These practices require explanation and instruction by a qualified teacher and are taught at regular intervals at most Bodhi Path centers. They are typically undertaken by the practitioner as a personal practice.
