Cultivating True Compassion: The Bodhisattva Vow

Meditation Instructor Marcus Casey continues our study of the book Cultivating True Compassion by Thrangu Rinpoche, covering the chapter which focuses on The Bodhisattva Vow. Our high ideals in wanting to live a life of love and compassion are tested when we take the Bodhisattva Vow, in which we promise to watch for – and diminish – selfish fixation in all aspects of our lives. In this chapter Thrangu Rinpoche discusses the Vow, how we take it and maintain it.
