How to develop Bodhicitta
Margo van Greta
From Tuesday 20 July, 6 evenings, ONLINE
In this module you will discover the clear meditation instructions available in Tibetan Buddhism which enable us to develop our innate qualities of loving kindness and compassion. Learn the skills of applying these techniques to generate the mind of Bodhicitta, the wish to attain enlightenment for the benefit of others, known to be the heart of Buddha’s teachings.

You will develop your innate qualities of loving-kindness, compassion, and appreciation of others.
