The Bodhisattva Way of Life

Becoming a Friend of the World: Following the Way of Life of a Bodhisattva

This mind to benefit living beings,
Which does not arrive in others even for their own sakes
Is an extraordinary jewel of a mind,
Whose birth is a unprecedented wonder.
~ Shantideva from Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life.

 A Bodhisattva is a person who, motivated by great compassion, has developed a spontaneous wish to attain enlightenment for the sake of all living beings. Bodhisattvas are friends of the world who have such strong compassion they’re able to transform all of their daily activities into a means to benefit others.

Many people have the compassionate wish to benefit others, but few understand how to accomplish this. What is this “extraordinary jewel of a mind”? How can we generate this rare and precious jewel? How can we learn to become Bodhisattva’s ourselves?

 Join us on this special Saturday course with our Resident Teacher, Kelsang Kunden to learn how, by following the Bodhisattva’s way of life, we can transform all our activities into a means of accomplishing our spiritual goals. This course will include teachings on the Bodhisattva’s way of life as well as meditations on this extraordinary mind of Bodhichitta.
