Eight Verses for Training the Mind

Lecture with Lama Jigmé Namgyal

In this seminar on Saturday morning, Lama Jigmé Namgyal will explain the short text: ‘Eight verses for training the mind’. In addition to the explanation, he will also give practical instructions on how to integrate this into daily life.

This short text was paid high attention by many great masters throughout history. H.H. Jigme Phuntsok Rinpoche regarded this text as the principal instruction among all the Dharma teachings he imparted.

The Eight Verses for Training the Mind can bring tremendous benefits to the practice of both Sutrayana teachings and Tantrayana teachings. The first seven verses of the Eight Verses for Training the Mind deal with the practices associated with cultivating the method aspect of the path such as compassion, altruism, aspiration to attain buddhahood. The last verse deals with the practices that are directed toward cultivating the wisdom aspect of the path.
During these eight Saturdays Lama Jigmé Namgyal will give us the opportunity to gain a thorough understanding with practical instructions to apply in our daily life.
