Lama Jinpa Tharchin
Awakening Mind: The Seven Points of Mind Training
Mondays, 7-9PM CDT, Beginning August 24, 2020
The Mahayana Mind Training (Lojong) practices offer profound methods to generate and cultivate Bodhicitta, the heart-mind of awakening. Through developing the two wings of compassion and non-dual awareness, these practical methods involve using whatever arises in one's own experience to purify and transform the bewildered, dualistic mind into basic, enlightened intelligence. The teachings will emphasize freeing ourselves from the torture of ego-centered awareness and discovering our own true heart and mind, Bodhicitta itself. Lama Jinpa Tharchin
