The Bodhisattva is the ideal of Buddhism, the hero working to better the world. But the world has changed very much since this ideal arose around two thousand years ago. Is it still possible to be liberated from the world while choosing to work for its good? And is it really possible to live in a state of bliss, while keeping alive a deep sense of loving solidarity with other living beings? On this Great Gathering we'll be exploring how we can live in a more Bodhisattva-like way, aspiring to respond to the modern world as the Buddha would respond.
