“The tracks left by all Buddhas, past, present and future;  Quintessence of the 84,000 Teachings are the instructions on altruistic Bodhicitta;  Don’t forget them.  Practice them!  That is my heart advice.”  page 9 Heartfelt Advice of Dharma Nectar, Khenpo Karten Rinpoche

The supreme good heart, or Bodhicitta, is a precious mind that cherishes all living beings over oneself–altruism in its deepest and broadest form.  As the Dalai Lama says in a 2015 video, “Whoever generates this altruistic intention will find themselves setting out on the path to true happiness.”   Letting go of ego-clinging that seeks only the happiness of the self, and developing a mind that wishes for the happiness of all creates peace of mind and joy for the practitioner.   The benefits of cultivating this attitude are profound: from better health and more harmonious relationships, to the ultimate liberation of enlightenment.   Join Khenpo Karten Rinpoche as he teaches on the many benefits of Bodhicitta, followed by a discussion on practical ways to gently encourage the supreme good heart in ourselves.

This teaching follows our regular meditation class, held 10-11am on Saturdays.
