Commentary on Bodhicitta

7 February 2015, 09:30 - 11:30

Nagarjuna’s Commentary on Bodhicitta touches on the two aspects of the awakening mind, the twin qualities of wisdom and compassion, which are necessary for anyone who aspires to be a better person and implement change in their lives. The instructions for cultivating them within each of us are explained in this teaching, so that individuals may follow in the footsteps of the Buddha.
Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike, come away profoundly moved and motivated to take responsibility and create positive changes in their lives.
