Discovering Buddhism: Developing Bodhicitta with Ven. Chokyi

Suggested donation: $150.00



Loving kindness is the essence of Bodhicitta, the attitude of the Bodhisattva. It is the most comfortable path, the most comfortable meditation.
Lama Thubten Yeshe 

Bodhichitta is the heartfelt wish to attain enlightenment in order to be able to benefit all beings. Without it, enlightenment is impossible, because Bodhichitta frees us from the habitual self-concern that prevents us from experiencing true happiness and lasting peace. But most of us have trouble just developing kindness and compassion for those that we know, so how do we give rise to the vast aspiration of Bodhichitta?

In this module of our ongoing Discovering Buddhism program, we will analyse the concepts of equanimity, loving kindness, compassion and Bodhichitta. We will explore why Bodhichitta is important, and will learn step-by-step methods for developing Bodhichitta ourselves.

These instructions are a practical and effective way to develop the good heart and show us how to make our lives truly meaningful.
