The Meaning of the Bodhisattva Vow

Offering Our Lives for the Welfare of Others
Digital goods limited to 1 product per purchase
Surrendering our agendas and identities in order to meet the world with warmth and wisdom
Full Description

At a certain point on the spiritual path, an overwhelming opening of the heart occurs, and there is a natural outpouring of love and warmth toward the world. When this happens, we can affirm our commitment to our own awakening for the benefit of others by taking the Bodhisattva Vow. In doing this, we dedicate our lives to the happiness, welfare, and awakening of others.

This important step should not be confused with being a helpful do-gooder, however. In these five talks from 2002–2010, Reggie shows us how the Bodhisattva surrenders ideas, agendas, and identities so that they can meet each situation with openness and accuracy. Teachings are included on the specific areas of training on the Bodhisattva path called the Six Paramitas.
