Although on the public level bodhichitta is usually described as the altruistic intention to reach enlightenment in order to bring all other beings there too, the real meaning of bodhichitta is far more profound. Learn about prana, rlung, Cheresig, Tara, Mani (Norbu), Christ, and much more.

This book is recommended in the lecture: Bodhicharyavatara (The Bodhisattva's Way of Life) by Shantideva.

"Ah, Lord God, my holy Lover, when You come into my heart, all that is within me will rejoice. You are my glory and the exultation of my heart. You are my hope and refuge in the day of my tribulation. But because my love is as yet weak and my virtue imperfect, I must be strengthened and comforted by You. Visit me often, therefore, and teach me Your holy discipline. Free me from evil passions and cleanse my heart of all disorderly affection so that, healed and purified within, I may be fit to love, strong to suffer, and firm to persevere. [...]Love is watchful. Sleeping, it does not slumber. Wearied, it is not tired. Pressed, it is not straitened. Alarmed, it is not confused, but like a living flame, a burning torch, it forces its way upward and passes unharmed through every obstacle." - Thomas a Kempis, The Imitation of Christ

"Bliss rises when the Vital Heat is fanned, When air from the nadis flows in the central channel, When Bodhichitta flows from above, When it is purified below, When red and white meet in the middle, And the joy of a leakless body satiates one, These are the Six Blissful Experiences of Yoga." - Milarepa
