Practices of bodhisattvas

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama explains the notion of the bodhisattva, describing the qualities that make a 'Buddha-to-be'. He also discusses the fundamental Buddhist concepts of enlightenment and emptiness, and how bodhisattva aspirations translate into moral efforts based on the desire to liberate all beings. The interconnected system of Tibetan Buddhist practice is used to illustrate how Buddhism sees material existence. The Dalai Lama ends with an outline of the vehicles of Buddhism and the path of the bodhisattva. In English and Tibetan.
