This practice is an essential and powerful way to address and purify the unskillful actions of body, speech and mind that can block us from making progress on the spiritual path.
The Way of the Bodhisattva, one of the great classics of Indian Buddhist literature, was composed by the distinguished 8th Century scholar, Master Shantideva. This revered text is widely regarded as the most authentic and comprehensive guide for the spiritual practitioner who is dedicated to the enlightenment of all beings, providing inspiring instruction on how to practice compassion and wisdom in everyday life. In this ongoing course, Geshe Thubten Sherab provides his own heart advice on how to follow in the way of the bodhisattva, the being committed to the peaceful and courageous path of full awakening.
Seeing Things As They Really Are
The fundamental truth of 'the way things really are' is described in Buddhist writings as 'emptiness' or shunyata in Sanskrit. In these teachings and meditations, Geshe-la explores emptiness and the nature of the mind, both of which can allow us to more easily deal with problems and difficult emotions and develop our inner capacity to awaken and see how things really are.
