"For the caravan of famished beings wandering the road of existence, hungry for the enjoyment of happiness, this is a feast of happiness offered as refreshment to all who come". In his third talk on the Bodhicaryavatara, Padmavajra explores themes from the third chapter, 'The Full Acceptance of the Bodhicitta', in which Shantideva describes the wonder of the arising of the Bodhicitta, the profound selflessness of the Bodhisattva Vow and the pride of being born as a Buddha son. The talk was given in honour of Bodhisattva Dr Baba Saheb Ambedkar Jayanti and our brothers and sisters in India. Throughout the talk Padmavajra refers to Dr Ambedkar's life.
