Bodhisattvas keep their minds wide open. As they walk the path toward enlightenment for the benefit of others, this openness allows them to use all experiences and circumstances to develop more compassion and wisdom. As modern bodhisattvas, we can remain engaged, yet stay open; we can take up a cause, yet stay open; and we can have compassion for both sides of a conflict by staying open. The bodhisattva path can be a powerful, personal way to meet and transform difficulties by embodying the spirit of altruism wherever we go.
Three talks, meditation, and discussion.
