DVD disc from the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive. During the Dalai Lama's 1982 teachings at Institut Vajra Yogini, France, Lama Yeshe said he was asked to "baby sit" the audience for a few days. The result is this excellent two-part introduction to the path of enlightenment, in which he explains the Three Principal Aspects of the Path - renunciation, bodhichitta, and the right view of emptiness.
Compassion is the guiding principle of the bodhisattvas and to this end, they must renounce all self-centred goals and consider only the well-being of others. The bodhisattvas enemies are the ego, passion, and hatred; their weapons are generosity, patience, perseverence and wisdom. Taken from a commentary given by the Dalai Lama in the Dordogne, France in 1991 this book will surely become a standard work for all those who wish to make the bodhisattva ideal a living experience.
