How to Abandon Non-Virtue
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 Moral Discipline.
Moral discipline is a virtuous mental determination to abandon non-virtuous actions. For a Bodhisattva, the main object to be abandoned is the intention to work solely for one’s own sake. Bodhisattvas see clearly the dangers of self-cherishing – thinking oneself to be supremely important – and they realize that it is the principal obstacle to benefiting all living beings.
