The Sublime Path to Happiness Retreat
Part of the Sublime Path to Happiness Series
Bodhichitta is a mind that spontaneously wishes to attain enlightenment for the benefit of all living beings. Through developing and maintaining bodhichitta, we can make all our activities meaningful and guide ourself and others to the supreme happiness of enlightenment.
“We need to have this precious mind of bodhichitta in our heart. It is our inner Spiritual Guide who leads us directly to the state of supreme happiness of enlightenment; and it is the real wishfulfilling jewel through which we can fulfill our own and others’ wishes. There is no greater beneficial intention than this precious mind.” ~ Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
