Description

Eight Verses for Training the Mind: A Retreat for Mitras and Order Members led by Dh. Dhammarati

"By thinking of all sentient beings
As more precious than a wish-fulfilling jewel
For accomplishing the highest aim,
I will always hold them dear."


The Seven Point Mind Training verses recommend that we ‘train with slogans’. This is the approach of the Indo-Tibetan Lojong tradition: the short, pithy and profound verses give us a bridge that helps us take our deepest meditation experiences into the rest of our lives. On this weekend we’ll be looking at the ‘Eight Verses for Training the Mind’, one of the most accessible of these Lojong texts, and the inspiration for Geshe Chekwa's (longer) Seven Point Mind Training. We’ll also explore the related Bodhicitta practice, the meditation which underpins the eight verses.
