Mini Mindfulness Break for June 24, 2020

The Bodhisattva Vow

Beginning students commonly ask how they can honestly vow to save all beings. It sounds like missionary arrogance. Hui-neng [the Sixth Zen Patriarch] offers a response: ‘You are saving them in your own mind.’ It is bodhichitta that you are cultivating–your own aspiration for wisdom and compassion, and your determination to practice it in the world as best you can.

– Robert Aitken Roshi, “The Bodhisattva Vows “
