Rinpoche has graciously agreed to teach on behalf of requests from several European Palpung Centres
(by Zoom video conference with a capacity for 500 participants)
Rinpoche will teach in English with simultaneous translations in French, Italian and Slovenian
“The Eight Verses for training the mind”
Mind training (lojong) is indispensable for those who wish to become bodhisattvas. This mind training text summarises the main points of training in bodhicitta.(the mind of Awakening) Like a manual, the text provides a step by step guide for practitioners to follow in order to develop bodhicitta gradually. The text is concise, short on words but deep in meaning .Each verse teaches a different practice through which we can endeavour to make our hearts and minds vaster and more encompassing. The profound practice of tong- len is one of the practices taught in this text.
Gyalton Rinpoche is one of our main teachers here in Ireland. He visits regularly and was due to visit here in August. As all his travel has been postponed Rinpoche has kindly agreed to teach this wonderfully profound and inspiring text by zoom video conference.
Everyone is welcome to attend the teaching.
