Opening our Heart through Lojong (Mind Training)

By training our minds (Tib. lojong) we can learn to cope better with life's challenges and turn any negative circumstances into an opportunity to develop love, compassion and understanding. Acharya Lama Kelzang Wangdi gives an overview of Lojong and guides us in meditations.

This weekend Acharya Lama Kelzang Wangdi shows us ways how we can open our hearts to others and ourselves with mind training (Tib. lojong).

Our mind is the source of all our happiness and suffering. Stress and suffering arise because of our self-centered attitudes. Through the exercises from the Lojong, we learn to awaken a compassionate heart and bodhicitta in us, to overcome our self-centeredness and to let positive thoughts and emotions arise, which lead to a more peaceful and happier life for us and others. Tonglen meditation is also part of Lojong, whereby we can transform suffering through sending out (Tib. tong) and accepting (Tib. len).

By training our minds this way, we can learn to cope better with life’s challenges and turn any negative circumstances into an opportunity to develop love, compassion and understanding. Acharya Lama Kelzang Wangdi gives an overview of Lojong and guides us in meditations.
