“If I have any understanding of compassion and the bodhisattva path, it all comes from studying this text” H.H. 14th Dalai Lama
Teaching: “The Way of The Bodhisattva” is the complete path to enlightenment according to the Mahayana tradition. Enlightenment can be understood as liberation from ignorance and disturbing emotions for the benefit of all beings. Shantideva explains that for this purpose we should cultivate the mind of enlightenment (bodhicitta). We begin the journey by developing a compassionate bodhicitta motivation, that is, a desire to attain enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. To put this compassionate motivation into action, we practice six perfect virtues (paramitas): generosity, ethical behavior, patience, enthusiastic effort, meditative concentration, and wisdom. Developing these virtues frees us from the causes of suffering – ignorance and disturbing emotions – and thus brings great benefit to us and others.
Due to the extensiveness of the topics, Rinpoche will teach the entire content of the book in three parts. The first part will take place in (European) summer (four Saturdays July 17 – August 7, 2021.), the second part will be held in autumn of 2021., and the third part at the beginning of next year (2022.), when we hope that Rinpoche will have the opportunity to visit Zagreb to teach the last part (it will also be live-streamed online for those who can’t join us in Zagreb):
PART ONE: Chapter 1-5 The Way of Bodhisattva (Summer 2021)
PART TWO: Chapter 6-7 of The Way of Bodhisattva (Autumn 2021)
PART THREE: Chapter 8-10 of The Way of Bodhisattva (Spring 2022)
