The Great Path of Awakening
An Easily Accessible Introduction for Ordinary People : A Commentary on the Mahayana Teaching of the Seven Points of Mind TrainingBook - 1987
At the core of spiritual development in Mahayana Buddhism is the arousal of bodhicitta, "awakened heart." Bodhicitta is the unconditional intention to help all sentient beings become free of suffering. It is the complete abandonment of any sort of personal territory, both in our relationships with others and in our understanding of the world as it is. It begins with the development of love and compassion for others and matures into the full resolution to help them as much as possible.
