Join Ayya Yeshe, a longtime Tibetan Buddhist nun and founder of the Bodhicitta Foundation, as she explores bodhisattva training, or the spiritual commitment to work for the enlightenment of all beings. She will concentrate on the teachings of the 12th-century meditation master Geshe Chekawa on how to make compassion second nature.
