Meditation on Compassion and Bodhicitta
May 28, 29 Sunday and Monday 4:30 - 6:30 PM
by Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tsephel
In Bhāvaviveka's Heart of the Middle Way it states, "The seed of Buddhahood is bodhicitta, adorned with love and compassion and great wisdom; the wise therefore do not forsake it." Great compassion is the exceptional thought and strong wish that all sentient beings gain freedom from suffering and Bodhicitta is the thought of seeking complete enlightenment though the exceptional sense of responsibility to free all sentient beings from suffering. Both ensure our actions bring the greatest benefit to others and for the fulfillment of our own highest spiritual goals. Khensur Rinpoche will first give an explanation on the main points of compassion and bodhicitta followed by a short meditation.
