http://www.jewelheart.org/d...... Now we are talking about the Mahayana path. The retreat we are concluding today and finished yesterday, actually, is about one of the important points that the 8th century Indian teacher/ scholar/saint known as Shantideva made. Shantideva can be translated as God of Peace. He provided the materials with which to become pacified and peaceful, ourselves as well as all. We went through with this and for the first few days we talked about the advantages you have if you have bodhimind. Normally we talk about benefits, but that word is so commonly used that it has almost become a buzz word. We saw huge advantages in Shantideva's statements. He calls it the "precious mind", which is true. It is extremely difficult to get, difficult to understand and even difficult to get to hear about.
