Lama Rabten Tshering will teach on Lojong: Seven Points of Mind Training
Lama Rabten Tshering is Nalandabodhi Canada’s resident teacher. He became a monk at the age of 16 and trained at Rumtek Monastery in Sikkim, India, the principal seat of His Holiness the Karmapa. In 1992 Lama Rabten was appointed senior Disciplinary Master of the monastery and served in this capacity for five years. He completed a three-year retreat at Pullahari Retreat Center in Kathmandu, Nepal.
Lojong: Seven Points of Mind Training includes pith instructions for working with our mind in meditation and everyday situations as a way to awaken. The study and practice of the Seven Points of Mind Training provides a method of training our mind to reverse self-centeredness and open us to compassion.
Lojong was introduced to Tibet in the eleventh century by the great Indian master Lord Atisha. The teachings focus on the development of Absolute Bodhicitta and Relative Bodhicitta in seven stages. Many meditation and contemplation methods are employed to transform the mind, such as Tonglen (exchanging oneself for others), and the Lojong Slogans. Lama Rabten will offer teachings on this precious text over two weekends.
