In this Dharma Talk, Sensei Irene Kaigetsu Bakker explores chapter 7 of the Bodhicaryavatara, the Perfection of Zeal. She tracks Shantideva’s progression from a fear-based warning against unwholesome deeds to an insight-based joy that arises from wholesome deeds. It is exactly through finding the joy in wholesome deeds that zeal is perfected.

This SESSHIN is part of the Spring Practice Period 2021.
