Date: Monday, October 2nd
Time: 7:00 pm PT
Led by: Anthony Bruno
This class will explore the meaning and practice of the four immeasurables (love, compassion, joy, and equanimity) on the bodhisattva path, based on the Mahayana sutras and commentaries. The four immeasurables—focused on immeasurable sentient beings—are the cause for the immeasurable accumulation of merit and wisdom, and as a result, the fruition of the immeasurable qualities and wisdom of a fully enlightened buddha.

Anthony Bruno (Tenzin Chödrak) feels incredibly grateful, due to the kindness of his Dharma teachers, for the opportunity to study and practice Buddhism in his life. His first Dharma mentor was Dr. C.T. Shen, a nonsectarian practitioner and benefactor who introduced him to Mahayana Buddhism in the 1990’s and emphasized initial study of the sutras. Later, Dr. Shen encouraged Anthony to practice Tibetan Buddhism and helped forge his connection with His Holiness Sakya Trichen and other lamas. Anthony received the main practice instructions, including Lamdre, in the Sakya tradition. He is thankful for the opportunities to serve or support Buddhist programs and charitable activities, including the Marici Fellowship. He earned a J.D. degree, summa cum laude, from New York Law School and a B.A. degree, magna cum laude, from New York University, with a major in journalism and minor in fine arts.
