About The Event
A Good Heart
The gateway through which we enter the Bodhisattva’s path is bodhichitta. ‘Bodhi’ means enlightenment and ‘chitta’ means mind. Bodhichitta is a mind that spontaneously wishes to attain enlightenment to benefit each and every living being directly. The moment we develop this precious mind of bodhichitta we become a Bodhisattva – a person who spontaneously wishes to attain enlightenment for the benefit of all living beings – and we become a Son or Daughter of the Conqueror Buddhas.
This supreme good heart of bodhichitta cannot be developed without training. Je Tsongkhapa said:
Through watering the ground of affectionate love with cherishing love,
And then sowing the seeds of wishing love and compassion,
The medicinal tree of bodhichitta will grow.
This implies that there are five stages of training in bodhichitta: 1. training in affectionate love; 2. training in cherishing love; 3. training in wishing love; 4. training in universal compassion; and 5. training in actual bodhichitta.”
This class series is taught by Gen Kelsang Chokyi, Resident Teacher at KMC Bloomington, and is based on Modern Buddhism by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso,
Everyone can benefit from meditation whether you are Buddhist or non-Buddhist. You will have 24 hours to listen.
