This is a great three-part series on 'The Alchemy of Love', Padmavajra's exploration of the transformative magic that is Bodhichitta practice. The series takes for its root text Shantideva's 'Bodhicharyavatara', and like that book is filled with strong reflections on how we might transform our lives in the light of a genuine, selfless love. The Bodhisattva Ideal has never been more relevant to the world than it is in our time - Padmavajra's conclusions about its practical uses in our personal and communal lives are both bracing and properly hopeful.
