Bodhichitta is the mind seeking enlightenment, the fulfillment of one’s highest potential. The bodhisattva vow is a deep commitment that facilitates the development of bodhichitta. These vows relate to refraining from harm, engaging in beneficial actions and work for the welfare of all sentient being with equanimous loving kindness and compassion. An aspiring bodhisattva is a heroic person who lives in the spirit of that vow, perfecting the qualities of the six paramitas (the six perfections; generosity, morality, patience, motivation, concentration, and wisdom), in the biggest of efforts to liberate sentient beings.

About the Teacher

Venerable Lozang Yönten was ordained in 2003. Buddhist since her teenage years, Ven. Yönten moved to Australia at age 19 and studied extensively under Gyurmé Khensur Rinpoche Geshe Tashi Tsering (at Chenrezig Institute) from 2002-2009 before moving to India to study at Thosamling Institute from 2010-2011. In 2012, she became a registered In-Depth teacher with the FPMT and was requested to become the resident teacher at Kunsang Yeshe Retreat Centre in New South Wales, Australia where she remained for three years and frequently visited up until the pandemic.

From 2015 onwards, Ven. Yönten was mainly based in New Zealand at Mahamudra Centre. During that period, she divided her time between leading retreats in New Zealand and teaching philosophy at Human Spirit: Buddhist Psychoanalytic Training Program in Israel, as well as offering classes and retreats in various parts of Europe, until she moved back to the USA in 2021.

Venerable has offered retreats and courses at Vajrapani Institute and Land of Medicine Buddha – both in California before joining the Maitripa College faculty as a lecturer in Buddhist Studies and as their chaplain. She also has experience in hospice work and palliative care, as well as a deep commitment to social justice and a love of animals.
