Lojong: The Mind Set of Awakening

Led by: Nancy Floy and Larry Akey
Friday evening, December 6 and Saturday, December 7

If we pay close attention to our life experience,
we may notice that our suffering is due to
clinging to a sense of “I.”

Atisha

The skillfulness of lojong as expressed in the Seven Points of Mind Training has the power to change our view and the way we live our lives. Self-involvement, and the belief that our own happiness is more important than the happiness of others, keeps us bound in the wheel of samsara. The teachings of the Buddha point the way out of this bind and are simply and profoundly expressed in the lojong teachings of the great 10th century master, Atisha Dipamkara

This weekend program will delve into the meaning and application of the mind-training slogans and will include the practice of tonglen. These pithy slogans are a wonderful guide in how to incorporate the wisdom and skillful means of Mahayana Buddhism in practical ways in everyday life.

All are invited to attend, whether you are new to the mind-training slogans or have been working with them for a while.
