From the Teachings of Yogini Machig Labdrőn
Hojin Sensei offers us the teachings of Machig Labdrőn, a Tibetan Buddhist yogini who lived and taught during the 11th-century. We are reminded that we can experience life as sweet, bitter or both. Machig Labdrőn encourages us to examine our blind spots in order to realize that the obstacles in our path are just a product of our confusion and hardening views. We should remain in the examination of what is happening now.
