exchanging self and others
This third course of the ACI In-Depth Course Series presents the entire section on the practice of exchanging ourselves and others, which is a large part of the chapter on meditation (Chapter Eight) from The Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life (Bodhisattvacaryāvatāra, Byang-chug sems-dpa’i spyod-pa la ‘jug-pa, digital text number TD3871 from the Asian Classics Input Project), by Master Shantideva (c. 700 AD). This course is meant to give much more detail on this subject than the related original ACI course, Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life, Part Two (ACI Course XI), which covered only about half of this section on exchanging ourselves and others.
We will use Geshe Michael Roach's exquisite translation to soak up the compassion teachings of Master Shantideva.
