His Holiness continues his teaching on Atishaâs Lamp for the Path, focusing on the two complementary aspects of that path to Buddhahood: method (bodhichitta) and wisdom (realizing emptiness). The method aspects of the path are based upon the holistic wisdom of interdependent causation while wisdom is developed through the method practices. His Holiness discusses how to generate the mind of bodhichitta, Bodhisattva vows, the three aspects of Bodhisattva conduct, how to maintain and enhance bodhihcitta, our Buddha nature, and how to examine potential teachers.
