Training the Mind: Cultivating Compassion


Lama Shenpen begins her year of teaching on love and compassion, drawing from this classic Tibetan text. Many of you will know it from the commentary by Trungpa Rinpoche.The teachings themselves are likely to have been practiced for over 1000 years. 

Lama Shenpen will give teachings on this from the Shentong view, approaching love and compassion as inherent Buddha Qualities, the True Nature, the very Heart of our Being free from confusion.

This teaching day is available to everyone.
