The Thirty-Seven Practices where written in the Fourteenth century by Gyelsay Togmay Sangpo. “Recognizing their true potential and letting go of everything which could hinder them on their spiritual journey, Bodhisattvas entrust themselves to the path taught by the Buddha. Resisting disturbing emotions, they learn to respond to difficult situations in a constructive way. Fully understanding the nature of reality and the illusion-like nature of pleasure and pain, they overcome clinging attachment and aversion. In these ways, Bodhisattvas come to cherish living beings as the source of all happiness and are ultimately able to work solely for the good of all.” Geshe Sonam Rinchen.
By learning these practices it is possible for us to see how we can transform our actions, feelings and ways of thinking.
