The practice of all the bodhisattvas is to arouse bodhicitta,
So as to bring freedom to all sentient beings, infinite in number.
For how can true happiness ever be found while our mothers,
Who have cared for us throughout the ages, endure such pain?

– Gyelse Tokme Zangpo

The Bodhisattva Path is the path of the Mahayana Buddhists. A Bodhisattva vows to work towards reaching the enlightened state of mind for the benefit of all sentient beings and leaves no one behind. They work tirelessly for others. It might sound like a tiring job, but why aren’t they tired? and is it even realistic to take up such a task? Our beloved teacher Ven. Robina Courtin, a living Budhisattva, answered our requests and will give teachings on the Fearless Path of Bodhisattvas. Everyone is welcome to join us.

“The perfections are the practices of bodhisattvas, holy beings who have completely renounced the self; they have transcended selfish concerns and cherish only others. Each perfection is perfect, flawless. Each arises from bodhichitta and is supported by the other perfections, including the wisdom of emptiness. Because of that, a bodhisattva generates infinite merit every moment, whether outwardly engaged in working for others or not. A bodhisattva’s bodhichitta never stops.” —Lama Zopa Rinpoche
