The teaching of Buddha known as the Middle Path is based on bodhicitta. First Buddha taught about suffering and peace and the various methods through which we can overcome suffering and develop both inner and outer peace. Then Lord Buddha gave a vast number of teachings, the essence of which is bodhicitta. These were later compiled into sutras by his disciples.
The principle thought and motivation of a person who has bodhicitta is, "I wish to be liberated from the ignorance and defilements of samsara for the benefit of all sentient beings."Click Here to download this teaching, or Click Here to Read it Online .
