Lojong or "mind training" cultivates realization in emptiness and compassion, the essential qualities of the bodhisattva warrior. This practice-oriented course will explore the mahayana slogans of Atisha, a 10th century Indian Buddhist master whose teachings left a deep imprint on all Tibetan lineages. The contemplative practice of exchanging self for other (tonglen or "sending and taking") is emphasized in conjunction with day-to- day application of the mind training slogans.
