Towards the end of 2018 Satyaraja led the Padmaloka Winter Retreat, 'The Awakening of the Bodhi Heart'. This was a two-week intensive meditation retreat for men training for ordination and Order members. The retreat was centred around the 'Bodhicitta practice', also known as 'tonglen', a weighty meditation practice that, through contemplating emptiness and arousing great compassion, aims at nothing less than giving rise to the Bodhicitta, or 'will to Enlightenment' for the benefit of all. During this talk Satyaraja introduces us to the principles and form of this profound practice.
