A Guide to the 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva, part 1
explained by Khenpo Chödrak Tenphel Rinpoche
translated by Kiki Ekselius
A Guide to the 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva is an ancient text, written in the 14th century by Togme Zangpo, a buddhist monk and scholar, who was born in Puljung, not far from one of the major Sakya monasteries of the Tsang-Region in Tibet. The 37 practices seek to make clear the day-to-day behaviour of a bodhisattva (a practitioner of the buddhist path, who aspires to attain buddha the enlightened state for the benefit of all sentient beings). It serves as a practical guide for individuals who seek to practice the path to enlightenment. Though short in length, a person could spend a lifetime perfecting the practices.
