THE EIGHT VERSES OF THOUGHT TRANSFORMATION —
A CLOSE CONTEMPLATION OF ONE OF THE DALAI LAMA'S FAVORITE TEXTS!
“Lojong (Mind Training) helps us to come to terms with every illusion and concept, all the mistaken ideas we have about our own nature and reality. There is actually no difference between one illusion and another. They are not good or bad in themselves. Although some illusions are more pleasant than others, they all hinder us. The illusion of suffering is our own idea, we have produced it and we can do away with it.”
— Mind Training by Ringu Tulku, Snow Lion, 2007.
In this class, we will study, contemplate and engage in short meditations on the Mind Training text entitled: "The Eight Verses of Thought Transformation." This text was composed by Geshe Langri Tangpa, (1054–1123) a renowned teacher in the lineage of the Kadampa and Gelug schools of Tibetan Buddhism.
