【Education Study #20200018: Buddhist Deportment - Debut of True Buddha School Online University Live Webcast Buddhist Courses Presented through YouTube for TBS Disciples and All Sentient Beings】
How are those who cultivate a spiritual path different from those who don’t? Dharma King Lian-sheng teaches that ordained disciples must have exemplary deportment; they should “walk like the wind, stand like a pine tree, sit like a bell, and sleep like a bow.” Outwardly, disciples’ overall deportment demonstrates the True Buddha School’s dignified ability to save sentient beings. Inwardly, deportment can influence one’s inner sense of dignity.
How does a lay person apply the bearing of a cultivator in social and daily life? How can the True Buddha Tantric Dharma enhance our relationships with others? How can it help us in our work or profession?
Buddhist Deportment, a practical course brought to you by the True Buddha School Online University, will show you how to integrate Buddhadharma into your life, elevate your spiritual qualities, and make your life more fulfilled!
