Today begins the 108 Day Bodhisattva Challenge. With the start of a new year, Kalu Rinpoche reminds us to start at home.
If we can practice bodhicitta, develop patience, and pacify all disharmony in our own home, then we have prepared the way leading to the development of limitless bodhicitta. If, on the other hand, we cannot maintain patience and harmony in our own home with our own family, then it is very unlikely that we will be able to do this with respect to all sentient beings, who are infinite in number. – Kalu Rinpoche
