Geshe Sherab “Adopting the Awakening Mind” – watch online!
Shantideva’s text “Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life” (Bodhicaryāvatāra) holds a unique place in Mahayana Buddhism. It combines the rare qualities of scholastic precision, spiritual depth and poetical beauty. It was composed in India during the 8th century and has since been an inspiration to millions of people throughout the world. Despite of its profound message, the text astonishes with its simplicity and relevance– one can apply the advice in everyday life immediately.
At the end of 2018 Geshe Sherab gave a 3-evening course based on the second and third chapter of Shantideva’s text at Lhagsam Tibetan Meditation FPMStudy Group in Zurich. The course helps to understand what it means to live with a good heart and altruistic motivation, as from the Mahayana perspective, it is the only way to achieve happiness and ultimately enlightenment. You can now watch the video from the entire course online. Enjoy!
