'The Ordination Acceptance Vows' is, prosaically enough, a two-talk series by Padmavajra on the four verses of acceptance for ordination into the Western Buddhist Order. But really this an evocation of the Bodhisattva's path, the verses themselves being rooted deeply in that most inspiring and challenging of traditions that should make any Buddhist reconsider the meaning of aspiration and commitment on the spiritual path.
