James Baraz's Dharma Talks at East Bay Insight Meditation Community
James Baraz
I try to convey that the wisdom and compassion we are looking for is already inside of us. I see practice as learning how to purify our mind and heart so we can hear the Buddha inside. In doing so, we naturally embody the dharma and help awaken that understanding and love in others we meet.
2008-07-31 Bodhisattva's Way Of Life - part 1: Benefits Of Bodhicitta 59:54
I just received teachings with the Dalai Lama last week on the topic, I'm going to start a series on Shantideva's Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life. This is one of the Dalai Lama's central teachings. As he says, "If I have any understanding of compassion and the practice of the bodhisattva path, it is entirely on the basis of this text that I possess it."
