Publisher's Summary

Just as the archetypal hero possesses the heart to face trials and tribulations for the sake of helping others, the bodhisattva has a remarkable resolve to free others from suffering so that all may achieve true happiness and awakening. Through each challenge, the Buddhist hero of compassion develops rich inner qualities that empower them to be of true benefit to others.

In The Heroic Heart, Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo, an esteemed spiritual teacher with a lifetime of experience, illuminates the heart of Mahayana Buddhism—bodhichitta—describing it as “the selfless expression of boundless compassion.” Jetsunma uses as a touchstone the famous Tibetan Buddhist text The Thirty-Seven Verses on the Practice of a Bodhisattva. Here, she reveals how to become such a compassionate hero, the bodhisattva in training, and helps us to face the uncertain tides of the world, however joyful or dangerous, with a deep wish to find meaning and uncover the ultimate heart of wisdom and compassion.

Inspiring

This is a commentary on the 37 practises of. Bodhisattva written by Tokme Zangpo. It also contains extracts from Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche’s commentary on the same text entitled Heart of Compassion.

It is a wonderful book full of insight and advice and perfect for beginner and advanced practitioner alike. Very inspiring and encouraging.

It turns our normal reactions and habits on their head and encourages a warm open heart to adversity.

Thoroughly recommended.
