Mahayana Aspiration Requirements?

Recommended Posts

Does the great Mahayanistic aspiration need to be generated through accomplishment of Bodhicitta before one should consider taking on the Varayana practices, and taking refuge in the guru as well as the three jewels?

One doesn't need to have generated yet Bodhicitta to take Refuge, to establish the master-disciple relationship, or start Vajrayana practices. Actually the practices will help to develop Bodhicitta.

But the Vajrayana practices won't bring highest results withtout at least a correct understanding of Bodhicitta, Emptiness, and Renunciation.

The engament into Vajrayana practice require that you are guided by a qualified Master. Like someone decided to start climbing mountain walls need a correct guide...
