In this week’s episode, from Maitripa College’s Philosophy 302 class, Yangsi Rinpoche teaches on the Bodhisattva vow and gives commentary on exactly what it means to wish for and engage in actions leading to enlightenment for the sake of all sentient beings. In discussion, the class explores the differences between Aspiring and Engaging Bodhicitta, as well as the practice of wisdom and ethics that is the foundation of the Bodhisattva vow.
