Mahayana and the Bodhisattva Vow


with Bozica Costigliola
March 19 / 7:00 PM - April 9 / 8:30 PM

All sentient beings are endowed with wisdom, compassion, and power, yet we suffer through confusion about what our true nature is. In the early stages of the path, we work to free ourselves from our confusion and suffering. When we attain some confidence and realize that beings are still caught in suffering, we become inspired to dedicate our lives to helping them. We might take the bodhisattva vow and formally undertake the disciplines of a warrior bodhisattva.


The bodhichitta practices for waking up our hearts are the core disciplines of the mahayana journey. This course will focus on these practices we cultivate in our training on the bodhisattva path. This class is open to all and is a prerequisite for those aspiring to take the bodhisattva vow.
