Entering the Path of the Awakened Warrior
Tampa | March 5th, 2017
In this talk, Dharma teacher Fred Eppsteiner shares from the first chapter of "The Way of the Bodhisattva" by Shanti Deva. Fred explains how ShantiDeva reveals that there is another mind that all of us can aspire to live from that is very different than our everyday ego-centric, suffering mind. This mind is termed Bodhiccita, and is a mind that wants all beings to be happy, no beings to suffer, and ponders how to bring all beings to that point. It is a mind that sees every interaction as an opportunity to bring benefit to others. Fred explains that when this mind is cultivated within individuals in this world and is then manifested in their actions of body, speech, and mind, we will then have a very different world.
