Eight Verses for Training the Mind 1/2

Lecture with Lama Jigmé Namgyal

We are delighted to announce that Lama Jigme will come to our Temple in Rotterdam to teach. Please note we only have 20 seats available. The lecture will also be available to join online. Make sure to choose the right ticket when registering.

The next two Saturdays (June 12 and July 10) will be a review of the teachings on the Eight Verses for Training the Mind, which Lama Jigmé Namgyal has been teaching about since September last year. These two sessions will be interactive, which means that Lama himself will be asking the participants questions and will give them the opportunity to share and ask questions concerning this topic as well.

Eight verses for training the mind
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.
