Nagapriya  explores the emergence of the Bodhisattva Ideal in the Mahayana tradition by discussing the historical context in which this basic concept developed, its ties to early Buddhist texts, and what the bodhisattva’s life entails, on both the mundane and cosmic levels.

From the talk entitled The Ideal of Universal Awakening, part of the series Visions of Mahayana Buddhism, given at Manchester Buddhist Centre, 2009.
