The Bodhisattva Vow

by Vessantara (2020)

In this concluding session, Vessantara briefly recaps the previous session, then speaks a bit about the culmination of the Bodhisattva vow in section 8 of the Tonglen text. We explore the transition from ‘wishing’ to ‘engaging’ – from developing the motivation of the Bodhichitta, and carrying it into our lives. Among other things we also explore how to relate to the Bodhisattva vow (in a way that’s inspiring rather than overwhelming). Following this we do a short guided session of the Bodhicitta practice.

This talk is part of the series The Bodhicitta Practice.
