Love and Compassion

Approaching the 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva, Part 1 and Part 2

In this text by the Buddhist teacher Gyelse Togme Zangpo, the state of mind and daily practices of a bodhisattva are described in 37 points.

In the beginning, a bodhisattva is an ordinary being who, over time, develops an understanding and application of enlightenment mind. Enlightenment mind is the deep wish that all beings experience lasting happiness and protection from all causes of unhappiness. In other words, enlightenment mind is kindness and compassion.

A bodhisattva is motivated by this enlightenment mind and practices to attain a clear mind. Such a person becomes aware of thoughts, emotions, and mental events immediately as they manifest, without them becoming a source of confusion or misunderstanding.

Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, will guide us through the text himself, explaining it to us and showing how we can walk this path of kindness and compassion in our present framework to become true bodhisattvas ourselves.

The Karmapas are a lineage of bodhisattvas, embodiments of kindness and compassion, dating back to the 12th century.
The 17th Karmapa was born in 1983 and is the actual holder of the Kagyü lineage. He is the recipient of that teaching and of its spiritual influence, and ensures its transmission. He shares his time between study, meditation and travels around the world to provide teachings. These cannot be limited to texts: they are alive, experienced by great accomplished masters who invite us to in turn live them.
The Gyalwa Karmapa is a perfectly enlightened being, holder of the Kagyü lineage, one of the four main schools of Tibetan Buddhism. The teaching of that lineage, originating with the Buddha, has been preserved pure until today through an uninterrupted master to disciple transmission.
