FBA Podcast: The Myth of the Bodhicitta

By Sadayasihi on Sat, 26 Oct, 2019 - 14:00

What is the Bodhicitta and how do we become receptive to it? Vajratara talks about the paradox behind the Bodhicitta: how it is an experience beyond any personal attainment, yet it arises in us. How can we hold both perspectives?
