Bodhisattvacharyavatara: Buddhist teachings with Lama Michel Rinpoche – 2013-2014

The ninth chapter on Wisdom: part of an extensive commentary by Lama Michel Rinpoche on A Bodhisattva’s Way of Life by Shantideva, one of the great classics of Mahayana buddhism.
Lama Michel Rinpoche guides us with great skill and care towards the altruistic aspiration of a Bodhisattva who seeks to reach Enlightenment for the benefit of all sentient beings, explaining in depth how to cultivate each of the Six Perfections that are the basis of the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life: generosity, morality, patience, joyful perseverance, concentration and wisdom, also known as the correct view of reality according to the Mahayana tradition, or the “Middle Way” of Nagarjuna and Chandrakirti.
Surprisingly pertinent to our present day in spite of having been written over one thousand years ago, the Bodhisattvacharyavatara is fundamental to understanding the essence of Buddhism in order to make our everyday lives significant.
These teachings were given in July 2013 at the Albagnano Healing Meditation Center, Italy. There is also an Italian version.
