The Buddhist teachings state that the ultimate obstacle to recognizing and achieving stability in the nature of the mind is our self-cherishing. The tradition of Lojong, or mind training, directly addresses this self absorption that lies at the root of our suffering. One of the most profound yet accessible expressions of this tradition is The Seven Points of Mind Training. Considered foundation to the path of Tibetan Buddhism, this teaching shows us how to directly identify our self cherishing and apply antidotes through contemplative meditation and the cultivation of an altruistic, compassion attitude towards others. The Seven Points of Mind Training t offers us a progressive, integrative set of techniques that can be immediately applied in our daily lives.
This weekend will present an overview of this classic text and discussion on how each point can help with integrating meditation with our daily activities.
