Description

This practice text was composed in the thirteenth century by Chin Namkha Drak, the great abbot of the Kadampa monastery of Narthang in Tibet. It comes from the mind training (Lojong) collection of teachings inspired by Atisha.

This teaching presents essential steps of the Mahayana, presenting them in a way that we can apply directly to our own personal situation – like all Lojong teachings. The only qualification we need to practice this teaching is, as Lama Jampa Thaye has said ‘our ordinary, confused mind, full of disturbing emotions, full of self-clinging and self-cherishing.’

The practice focuses first on the ‘Four thoughts that turn the mind to Dharma’ and then moves on to bodhicitta, alternating between conventional bodhicitta (compassion) and ultimate bodhicitta (wisdom).

All are welcome to attend the event. Facility fee $15
