"There’s that vast, tender, empty heart of bodhichitta, your awakened heart. Right in the pain there’s a lot of room, a lot of openness. You begin to touch in on that space when you relate directly to the messy stuff, because by relating directly with the messy stuff you are completely undoing the way ego holds itself together.” ~ Pema Chodron ...…
 
The guided meditation is a recitation of the Shower of Blessings sadhana while a special emphasis on using it as a vehicle for cultivating bodhichitta.
 
58 Cultivating Bodhichitta Having cultivated the Four Immeasurables - a common ground for many traditions - and the Four Greats - which necessarily implies viewing the possibility of enlightenment - we move in this session to the cultivation of bodhichitta. Alan explained the causal sequence for this practice as focusing initially on the world ...…
 
56 Extraordinary Resolve, the Bridge to Bodhichitta This session we come to the culmination of the Four Greats, extraordinary intention (Tib: lhag bsam). Alan explains how this resolve to bring all sentient beings to full enlightenment makes sense from the perspective of both rigpa and the relative, obscured reality of an ordinary being. We’re ...…
 
This morning Alan explains how to cross the great divide between concern for only your own interest and Great Compassion. The skillful fulcrum that can tip the scope of your concern is by applying yesterday’s practice of Equalizing Self and Others to just a single other being. By taking on her perspective, you see that every being lives in thei ...…
 
This morning we transition from the cultivation of the Four Immeasurables to the cultivation of the Four Greats. The practice of equanimity views all sentient beings evenly, recognizing they are all worthy of loving kindness, compassion, and empathetic joy, and today’s practice takes that another step as a bridge to the development of the Great ...…
 
Alan starts the morning practice with the short Lake Born Vajra Sadhana and again concludes the sadhana with advice for cultivating shamatha within the context of stage of generation practice. He suggests an outside/in and inside/out approach to sustaining the visualization with the outside being the view of our environment as a Pure Land produ ...…

Members of the Triratna Buddhist Order on their Pan-American Convention join with women training for ordination to chant the Bodhichitta mantra for the benefit of all beings. The 'Bodhichitta' is sometimes rendered as the 'will to Enlightenment' or the 'heart-mind of Enlightenment' - signifying the complete dedication of our efforts to cultivat ...…
 
Alan begins this morning’s meditation by asking us to initially imbue our practice with taking refuge, of Bodhichitta and our guru devotion, and permeate it with pristine awareness. Then release all appearances and simply rest in non-meditation. Following meditation practice, Alan comments we are choosing when taking refuge involving, among oth ...…
 
Alan returns to the theme of equanimity indicating that we do experience equanimity everyday but that it is contingent, short-lived and can develop complacency. Development of Shamatha practice is a form of equanimity but more stable. Think of anything that makes you happy in this life in the desire realm and imagine if you had that constantly ...…
 
Prior to meditation Alan reviews the progression of the teachings. We begin by opening the door to Dharma by creating authentic motivation, which, he points out, is not necessarily Buddhist. We move from this spirit of emergence to cultivating the four immeasurables through meditation, beginning with loving-kindness. This begins with ourselves, ...…

If you've ever felt appreciation or gratitude for someone and you felt inspired to let them know, but you didn't do anything about it - listen to this e ...…
