The Eight Verses for Training the Mind—A Powerful Practice for Transforming Difficult Circumstances
7:00 pm | 10$ - 25$
This event will be live streamed.
Almost one thousand years ago the great Indian teacher Atisha came to Tibet and began giving personal instructions to his Tibetan students. These instructions formed the basis for the Tibetan Mahayana tradition of training the mind called lojong. In these turbulent times these teachings help us to remain peaceful by keeping us focused on compassion and altruism. For this special evening at Tibet House, Khen Rinpoche will share with us his insight into one of the most famous mind training texts, Langri Thangpa’s Eight Verses on Mind Training. Whether you are a beginner or long-time student, listening to these teachings from Rinpoche will help you to take both your hardships and successes into the path and maintain a balanced and joyful state of mind.
Text for the talk is available with commentary by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, here: http://www.dalailama.com/teachings/training-the-mind
