“Lojong (mind training) is the life force of Dharma practice.” Karma Thinley Rinpoche
Mind training – (Tibetan – lojong) is a system of meditation for developing bodhicitta, the thought of enlightenment. At its heart is the practice of exchanging oneself for others, in which one cultivates loving kindness and compassion towards other beings. By mentally exchanging one’s own happiness for the suffering of others we cut through the self-clinging that is at the root of one’s own suffering.
‘The Buddha gave many different teachings and instructions according to the abilities and propensities of his students. The methods vary in levels of difficulty and accomplishment, but among the countless dharma practices, lojong is the superlative discipline. It is as priceless as a perfect diamond. Its worth cannot be measured because it is the very key that opens the inner door to enlightenment.’ Shamar Rinpoche.
