Seven Points of Mind Training (lojong) and Meditation sessions

Mind Training, or Lojong, is a comprehensive practice, which embodies the entire path to awakening. The Buddha recognized that we suffer because of our negative actions. Conversely, when we act positively, everyone benefits. In order to act positively in any situation, we must train our mind. Mind Training nurtures and cultivates Buddha Nature, that pure seed of awakening at the heart of every sentient being. It has the power to transform egotistical actions into selfless generosity and compassion. Put into practice diligently, Lojong can lead to full awakening.Shamar Rinpoche’s book, The Path to Awakening, A Commentary on Ja Chekawa’s Seven Points of Mind Training, Edited and Translated by Lara Braitstein, PhD, is the basis of this teaching program. Chekawa’s text was based on the Mind Training teachings brought to Tibet by Atisha in the 11th century.
