Rabbi Tirzah Firestone, Ph.D., founding rabbi of Congregation Nevei Kodesh in Boulder, Colorado (www.neveikodesh.org/) presents her Valley Beit Midrash lecture "Lighting the Way in a Dark World: The Tzaddik & The Bodhisattva" before an audience at Temple Chai (www.templechai.com/) in Phoenix, AZ. ABOUT THE LECTURE: We will compare texts and practices of two ancient traditions—Judaism and Tibetan Buddhism—through the most esteemed personification of each path. In Judaism, it is the Tzaddik (righteous person) upon whom the entire world depends. And in Tibetan Buddhism, it is the Bodhisattva (one who willingly gives up their own wellbeing for the sake of others.) Studying these wise, incisive teachings brings to light surprising similarities, and illuminates the path for all modern spiritual seekers.
