what is really bodhicitta

My answer to what is really bodhicitta. Bodhicitta is, put it very simply, bodhicitta is a wish – if you ask this question, what is bodhicitta, usually the answer is this wish and practice to enlighten all the sentient beings. But the word enlightenment has the connotation of nonduality. Because when we talk about enlightenment, enlightenment meaning awakened from something. Awakened from what? Awakened from a sleep, a deep sleep. And what is that sleep? What is that ignorance? It is non other than the dualism. So all the Buddhist practice, generosity, morality, including exotic methods in the Vajrayana, Tantrayana, such as visualization, all of this must be accompanied by the wisdom of nonduality.
