Prerequisite: Shambhala Training Level III
With trust in basic goodness and daring to experience the sharp edge of reality, we move forward with gentleness, increased awareness and inquisitiveness about the world as it is. We can extend ourselves to others fully and with kindness.
“Basic goodness is very closely connected to the idea of bodhicitta in the Buddhist tradition. Bodhi means ‘awake’ or ‘wakeful’ and citta means ‘heart,’ so bodhicitta is ‘awakened heart.’ Such awakened heart comes from being willing to face your state of mind. That may seem like a great demand, but it is necessary. The sitting practice of meditation is the means to rediscover basic goodness, and beyond that, it is the means to awaken this genuine heart within yourself.”
— Chögyam Trungpa
