One: the Preliminaries to Bodhichitta (16 March)
In part one of a two-part talk on becoming a Bodhisattva, we will see what foundations are needed to follow the path to englightenment.
Bu using the Buddha’s teachings, we can easily make sense of what is going around us in this world, and by applying the Buddha’s teachings as a compass we can navigate through confusion, rejection, and isolation. The Buddha teaches us to find meaning and true human purpose in the midst of disorientating worldly pursuits; as a result, we can apply this life to its maximum potential by learning what we need to adopt and what we need to abandon.
In part one we will see how following the guidance from a spiritual friend will help us along the path to enlightenment as they give us pointing out instructions.
Part Two: Engaging in Bodhichitta (Date TBA)
Buddhism clearly explains to us that the root of all suffering is self-cherishing, so to be selfless implies we are striving to be happy. In a world were competitiveness, self-importance, and aggression, are all seen as ideal traits – and even admired and imitated, the act of compassion and loving kindness stand out as something foreign and weak.
In part of two we will see how compassion is far from being weak and passive; the fact that it takes great courage and strength to be kind and caring.
