Bodhichitta Mengak Pack I

This series of modules is drawn from teachings given by Sogyal Rinpoche and Patrick Gaffney from 2004 to 2008. The carefully selected extracts are from many of Rinpoche’s most illuminating teachings on bodhichitta. They form the  section of The Mengak Study Pack, entitled ‘Arousing Bodhichitta—the Heart of Enlightened Mind’ and can be regarded as a definitive compilation.

As bodhichitta is central to the buddhist path, this whole series of teachings provides guidance lasting a little over a year, to help students establish a solid foundation.
Who are the module  for?
These modules are intended for students who have followed one year of study. These students will already have had plenty of opportunity to discover how joyful and rewarding study can be, especially when we apply the understanding gained through study into our practice and then integrate it into daily life. To embark on this, the students also need a certain amount of background knowledge which they will have gained from the earlier courses, and which will enable them to enter wholeheartedly into the bodhichittatraining in a way that is truly transformative.

Different modules within the bodhichitta teachings will cover the following main areas:
o An introduction, including a clarification of compassion, great compassion and bodhichitta
o The four immeasurables
o Arousing bodhichitta, which includes different classifications of bodhichitta and taking the bodhisattva vow
o The training in the precepts of the bodhichitta of aspiration, consisting of the practices of equalizing and exchanging oneself with others and considering others as more important
o The training in the precepts of the bodhichitta of action, namely the six paramitas of generosity, discipline, patience, diligence, concentration, and wisdom
o The Mengak for How to Generate Bodhichitta, which is the special way Sogyal Rinpoche has taught to bring all the most Crucial Points of the training in bodhichitta into one practice
