This course, together with its companion course Taming the Mind (cycle I), introduces a student to the view and practice of hinayana and mahayana. These courses are based on a three-week seminar taught by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche at Karmê Chöling in November 1999.

In Walking the Bodhisattva Path, Rinpoche presents the mahayana path of dedicating one's life and practice to rousing awakened heart and engaging the practices of a bodhisattva warrior for the benefit of all sentient beings.
