The 8 Verses of Mind-Training

WHEN: Thursdays, June 1 and 15, 7:00 – 8.30 pm CET
WHERE: Online only
LEVEL: Intermediate and advanced. Beginners are welcome!

Geshe Langri Thangpa’s “8 Verses of Mind-Traning” constitutes the foundation of lojong in Tibetan Buddhism and was originally considered radical step for most practitioners. A concise summary of the entire lojong, the 8 verses can be easily misunderstood, and Ven. Robina will explain it in a nuanced way and help us implement the text into our daily practice and life.

When in the company of others,
I shall always consider myself the lowest of all,
and from the depths of my heart
hold others dear and supreme
(Verse 2)
