Teaching in Virginia, USA

Mind Training, or Lojong, is a comprehensive practice, which embodies the entire path to awakening. The Buddha recognized that we suffer because of our negative actions. Conversely, when we act positively, everyone benefits. In order to act positively in any situation, we must train our mind.

Mind Training nurtures and cultivates Buddha Nature, that pure seed of awakening at the heart of every sentient being. It has the power to transform egotistical self-clinging into selfless generosity and compassion. Put into practice diligently, Lojong can lead to full awakening.

H.H. Shamar Rinpoche has completed a soon-to-be-published book, The Path to Awakening, A Commentary on Ja Chekawa’s Seven Points of Mind Training, Edited and Translated by Lara Braitstein, PhD. Join Rinpoche as he explains this profound practice, and helps students understand the Lojong path. Rinpoche concluded the program by giving the Bodhisattva Vow.
