Of all the precious jewels in the treasure trove of wisdom teachings in Tibetan Buddhism, one stands alone as its crowning achievement and most unique gift bequeathed to the world. Known simply as Bodhichitta, it is the altruistic resolve to awaken for the benefit of others and becomes the primary motivation for one’s compassionate engagement in a world gone totally mad. Over the centuries the Tibetans have refined several methodologies for its cultivating, among them is an eleven-step contemplative practice developed in the15th century by master Je Tsongkhapa and handed down in an unbroken lineage to the current Dalai Lama. Nothing better characterizes the Tibetan’s generous and courageous spirit, and there couldn’t be a more practical instruction for us now as we face the complex social challenges of modernity. Join Miles as he discusses the jewel heart of Bodhichitta, and helps you systematically cultivate radical compassion based not on sentimentality but on the wisdom of interdependence and universal responsibility for all living beings.
