The Bodhisattva Vow
A Practical Guide to Helping Others
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
A Bodhisattva is a person who, motivated by great compassion, has developed a spontaneous wish to attain enlightenment for the sake of all living beings.
By taking the Bodhisattva Vow, he or she undertakes to follow the Bodhisattva’s way of life by practicing the six perfections of giving, moral discipline, patience, effort, concentration, and wisdom.
This book shows how we can emulate the thoughts and deeds of a Bodhisattva and transform our ordinary daily life into the Bodhisattva’s way of life.
It also includes a powerful purification practice taught by Buddha for eliminating negative karma.
The Bodhisattva Vow is available in different languages and multiple formats from Tharpa Publications.
