Awakening Bodhicitta (1 of 3)
The practice of Tonglin is the meditative practice of sending and receiving. Absolute bodhicitta, the recognition that on some profound level there is no suffering. There may be unpleasant things, there may be difficulty, but the anguish and suffering doesn't really exist. The mind is light and there is peace at the heart of all. This understanding is what allows us to take in the suffering of others. The true nature of mind heals the suffering of the world.
