Description

Ajahn Dhammasiha relates the amazing, mind-blowing events surrounding the birth of the Bodhisatta as described by the Buddha himself in the "Acchariya-Abbhuta-Sutta"/"Wonderful and Marvellous"; #123 in the Majjhima Nikāya/Middle Length Discourses.Additionally, he points out that we all can be 'Bodhisatta-Mātās'/'Mother's of the Bodhisatta' in a metaphorical sense: We all harbour the potential for awakening in our mind, which is known as 'Tathāgata-garbha' = 'Embryo of the Tathāgata' in Mahāyāna Buddhism. If we carefully nurture this seed until it reaches maturity through dedicated Dhamma practice, we will ultimately give 'birth' to the 'Buddha' = realize Awakening.https://www.dhammagiri.nethttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJINt0JJBfFm_x0FZcU9QJwhttps://tinyletter.com/dhammagiri/archive
