At the heart of Buddhism is the desire for all beings to be free from suffering. When this desire includes everyone without bias it is called Great Compassion. With compassion, we naturally do everything in our power to bring benefit to others. During this course we will learn about the different types of love, the Four Immeasurables and generating the two levels of Bodhicitta. You will learn about Bodhicitta, the heart of enlightenment.
