Eight Verses to Turn Your Life Around
Saturday, 18 November 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
A short yet incredibly effective practice to turn your daily experience around from problems, difficult people and challenging circumstances, to a fulfilling and happy life. Guidance from our namesake, Geshe Langri Tangpa, for day-to-day life that accords with a deeper purpose for this fortunate human life.
Geshe Langri Tangpa’s short and profound teaching in just eight verses, guides us in taking the essence of this fortunate human life and not wasting one moment! The day includes teachings, guided meditations, informal discussion and reflective activities. Ideal introduction for first time students, and relevant to both Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike. Notes and selected readings provided.
What causes our suffering? How do we empower ourselves to overcome problems? The answer is to train our minds. If our perception of ‘problem’ or ‘suffering’ is transformed we can provide ourselves with the ultimate antidote. The eight verses by Geshe Langri Tangpa are a classic spiritual text of the lojong genre (mind training) and one of the main sources of inspiration for His Holiness the Dalai Lama in his daily meditations.
