A Bodhisattva is a person who, motivated by great compassion, has developed a spontaneous wish to attain enlightenment for the sake of all living beings. We can learn to follow the Bodhisattva’s way of life by practicing the six perfections of giving, moral discipline, patience, effort, concentration, and wisdom. In this course we will learn how to emulate the thoughts and deeds of a Bodhisattva and transform our ordinary daily life into the Bodhisattva’s way of life.
In this meditation class, we will focus on the Perfection of Giving.
Practicing giving does not merely entail bestowing gifts upon others, rather, giving is a mental training and involves developing the thought of giving without desiring anything in return. This practice is mainly aimed at eradicating our internal miserliness. Improving our intentions will bring good results for ourself and others.
