The 37 Practices of Bodhisattvas

Nov 20, 14 The 37 Practices of Bodhisattvas
A Buddha is someone who has completely eliminated all defilements from the mind and developed all good qualities limitlessly. Buddhas are sources of all well-being and happiness because they teach us the Dharma and by practising that, we will eliminate all misery and create the causes for all happiness and peace.
