On any Buddhist path, we train our mind. This course by Acharya Lama Kelzang Wangdi answers important questions in Buddhism: What is Mind? And what are its functions?

In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, the study of lorik, the classifications of mind, plays an important role. Understanding what that is in detail and how it functions helps the practitioner move forward on his path. This module is therefore not only of theoretical importance, but also has a very practical component.

The teachings are based on “The Presentation of the Classifications of Mind called The Essence of the Ocean of Texts on Reasoning” by Khenpo Tsültrim Gyamtso Rinpoche.
