Heart of Compassion: The 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva $18.00

The Heart of Compassion: The Thirty-seven Verses on the Practice of a Bodhisattva by His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche What would be the practical implications of caring more about others than about yourself? This is the radical theme of this extraordinary set of instructions, a training manual composed in the 14th century by the Buddhist hermit Ngulchu Thogme, here explained in detail by one of the great Tibetan Buddhist masters of the twentieth century, His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. In the Mahayana tradition, those who have the courage to undertake the profound change of attitude required to develop true compassion are called bodhisattvas. Their great resolve—to consider others’ needs as paramount, and thus to attain enlightenment for the sake of all living creatures—carries them beyond the limits imposed by the illusions of “I” and “mine,” culminating in the direct realization of reality, transcending dualistic notions of self and other. This classic text presents ways that we can work with our own hearts and minds, starting wherever we find ourselves now, to unravel our small-minded preoccupations and discover our own potential for compassion, love, and wisdom. Many generations of Buddhist practitioners have been inspired by these teachings, and the great masters of all traditions have written numerous commentaries. HH Dilgo Khyentse’s commentary is probably his most extensive recorded teaching on Mahayana practice. Translated by the Padmakara Translation group.
