Ken McLeod continues his commentary on the 37 Practices of the Bodhisattva with the 12th verse. Watch the other videos here.

 

12

Steals, or makes someone else steal, everything you own,
Dedicate to him your body, your wealth, and
All the good you’ve ever done or will do — this is the practice of a bodhisattva.
