A highly relevant teaching for the modern world, mind training helps develop the altruistic attitude, and transform adversity into advantage. These instructions help us to open our heart, develop wisdom, and overcome difficulty. Geshe Tsultrim is, warm, humble and his kindness is palpable. We will only have four teachings this term, at the new time of one Sunday afternoon per month. Geshe-la teaches through a translator, which means that we have time to digest the teachings in nice bite-size chunks! There are several translators in SE Queensland, including western teacher Corey Jackson, and Israeli-born monk Ven. Kartzon.
The Mind Training Like Rays of the Sun exemplifies Je Tsong Khapa’s presentation of thought transformation. What is distinctive about this presentation is that it combines both the mind training instructions as they are recorded in Geshe Chekawa’s text with the pattern of the Stages of the Path.
