The Bodhisattva, the great hero of the Mahayana, strives to reduce the suffering and increase the happiness of all sentient beings. He or she clearly sees that all beings long to be free from hardship and to experience contentment and joy, and does whatever is necessary to help them toward these goals. Madame Blavatsky found great inspiration from the Tibetan tradition on this path of “samyaksambodhi.” This lecture and slide show will explore the path of becoming a universal hero/heroine.
