The Dragon, The Tiger and The Wishfulfilling Jewel: Activating the Myth of the Bodhicitta

by Vajratara (2021)

Do we reflect on the Bodhicitta? Is it optional, a mystical goal we can take or leave? How does it become a motivating force in our lives?

Sangharakshita has described the Bodhicitta as a myth or symbol that galvanises our energies, something that makes sense of our lives, something emotionally moving that stirs us on a deep level. How are we to connect with that myth? Vajratara takes us on a journey of a deepening engagement with the Bodhicitta, evoking the Bodhicitta through 3 myths.

Talk given on an ordination retreat at Tiratanaloka retreat centre. Some technical terms are used.
