Welcome to Bodhicitta, a space dedicated to the dissemination and understanding of the teachings of Buddhism. Here, we aspire to build a bridge between ancient traditions and the contemporary world, seeking to enlighten minds and awaken hearts on the journey towards self-knowledge and universal understanding.
The word ‘Bodhicitta‘ comes from Sanskrit and can be translated as “awakened mind” or “mind of enlightenment“. It is a central concept in the Buddhist tradition denoting the sincere intention to attain enlightenment for the benefit of all sentient beings. This desire to generate well-being and free others from suffering is the essence of our mission.
At Bodhicitta we seek to be more than just a blog. We want to be a community, a virtual refuge for all those who seek answers, who want to deepen their Buddhist practice or simply find a moment of peace in the midst of the daily maelstrom. We believe in the transformative power of the Dharma (the teaching) and its relevance in today’s world, as it offers essential tools to face contemporary challenges.
We value dialogue and the respectful exchange of ideas. Therefore, we invite our readers to actively participate by sharing their experiences, questions and reflections. We believe that the spiritual path is enriched in community, and that together we can build a space where wisdom flourishes and is accessible to all.
We would like to express our deepest gratitude to all those who have accompanied us on this journey, whether as readers, contributors or simply as kindred souls on the path of the Dharma. Your presence and support make it possible for this project to continue to grow and benefit many.
If you are new to our community, we welcome you. We invite you to explore, learn and share in this oasis of wisdom and understanding. Together, we will build a more conscious and compassionate world, guided by the shining beacon of Bodhicitta.
May all beings find peace and happiness!
With love and gratitude,
The Bodhicitta team.
