The Paramita of Patience: A Talk and Celebration - Nalandabodhi Seattle

The Paramita of Patience: A Talk and Celebration

Fri., September 13, 2019
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Nalandabodhi Seattle (Nalanda West)

In semi-annual cycles, Nalandabodhi devotes one calendar month to emphasizing the study and practice of one of the six “paramitas,” or liberating virtues, as taught in Mahayana Buddhism.

The paramita for the month of September is patience.


To help us celebrate and further our familiarity with this paramita, we will offer a talk on the paramita of patience by Mitra Tyler Dewar and a period of guided contemplation and discussion.

These activities will be followed by a brief social gathering in the Nalanda West dining room.

There is no cost for the teachings, but donations are appreciated.

All are welcome to attend.


Mitra Tyler Dewar

Mitra Tyler was born in Nova Scotia, Canada. He has been engaged in the study and practice of Buddhism since 1996, becoming a student of Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche two years later. He began studying the Tibetan language in 1997, and became an oral interpreter and textual translator for Nitartha Institute and Nalandabodhi in 2000.
Tyler joined the faculty of Nitartha Institute in 2003 and was appointed as a senior teacher in Nalandabodhi in 2005. He has served as an oral interpreter for lineage-holding masters of the Kagyu and Nyingma traditions of Indo-Tibetan Buddhism. Tyler enjoys teaching on such topics as the four immeasurables, and exploring how the great Buddhist forebears inspire and inform life in the 21th century.
A musician and singer, he has participated in the creation of several ‘melodized’ liturgies and ‘dharma songs.’ Tyler is the father of an amazing daughter and lives in Seattle, Washington.
