HHPR Recommending taking the Bodhisattva Vows often

Post by kirtu » Fri Jul 16, 2010 2:35 am

About 1 1/2 years ago I was watching a tape of HH Penor Rinpoche teaching about the Bodhisattva Vows and he recommended that after taking the Bodhisattva Vow initially that we take it repeatedly, even everyday on our own and this would deepen and strengthen our Bodhisattva practice.

And I just realized that taking the Bodhisattva Vow is what happens first thing every morning during the Palyul summer retreat!

Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche

It should also be part of whatever meditation practices you are doing.
