Description - In the Footsteps of Bodhisattvas: Buddhist Teachings on the Essence of Meditation by Phakchok Rinpoche
True meditation gives rise to unsurpassable freedom. In the 21st century, we are in danger of diluting the idea of meditation down to a simple session on the cushion to make us calm. If we are in pursuit of freedom and a profound relationship to reality, then all experiences of life must become meditation. Phakchok Rinpoche challenges readers to take this book as a path to realize the open heart of true meditation.
In the Footsteps of Bodhisattvas teaches how the intangible essence of meditation naturally arises when we properly line-up the conditions within our lives. Going beyond a simple, one-dimensional training, the exercises and meditation methods outlined and the words of the Buddha, sourced from the King of Samadhi Sutra, create a clear path of training according to the Mahayana tradition of Buddhism. Combining the bodhichitta of aspiration--loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity--with the bodhichitta of application--engaging in the six practices of a bodhisattva--will give rise to ultimate bodhichitta, which is none other than the completely enlightened state, the supreme samadhi.
