About this Event

The main focus of mind training practice is the reorientation of our basic attitude, both toward ourself and toward our fellow human beings, as well as toward the events around us. The goal of mind training practice is the transformation of our thoughts, attitudes, and habits.

Presently, we tend to cherish the welfare of ourself at the expense of all others. However, the mind training teaching challenges us to reverse this process. This involves a deep understanding of others as true friends, and the recognition that our true enemy lies inside of ourselves, not outside.

As we practice these lojong teachings in daily life, we train the mind to embrace reality in a wholesome and compassionate way. We train to eliminate our competitive, selfish, and emotionally reactive tendencies, as well as our exaggerated concepts of self, and to understand that the greed, jealousy, anger, pride, selfishness, and attachment, which cause us so much suffering, are not inherent conditions of our mind.
