Way-of-the-Bodhisattva-Shantideva-Book

Update:

One more session has been added, to be held on Monday, May 13.

Description:

How do bodhisattvas meditate? In his renowned text, The Way of the Bodhisattva, Shantideva provides a guide to meditation through equalizing and exchanging self with others. Consequently, this instruction has become fundamental for the training of the mind in altruism and the bodhisattva vehicle.

Whether we are ready for the yogi’s life or not, this instruction will plant a seed to mature us for that path, and give us valuable tools to cultivate the spirit of enlightenment right now.

We will be drawing on verses from Chapter 8 of Shantideva’s The Way of the Bodhisattva by Padmakara Translation Group.
