His Holiness Comments on the Thirty-seven Practices of a Bodhisattva

The Text

I shall now give just a short commentary on this text. I have received its lineage from Kunu Lama Rinpoche, Tenzin-gyeltsen, and he received this from the prior Dzogchen Rinpoche in the province of Kham. This is just a little background history and this copy, in fact, I brought with me from Lhasa.

The sources for these teachings are Shantideva’s Engaging in Bodhisattva Behavior (sPyod-‘jug, Skt. Bodhisattvacharya-avatara), Maitreya’s Filigree of Mahayana Sutras (mDo-sde… Continue

Washington, D.C., April 1993

This is the 24th vow of Dharmakara Bodhisattva and it constitutes a manifesto for respect toward other wholesome religious traditions.



This is what HH the Dalai Lama says about religion:
