From the Mind Training (Lojong) Slogans of Atisha
Shugen Roshi continues his commentary on the 59 Mind Training Slogans of Atisha in this talk covering points 8, 9 and 10. Roshi looks at how and when we react to our experiences and encouraging us to take full responsibility for our own mind. He addresses how we can practice these slogans within our continuous practice of openness and mindfulness, and reminds us to start with ourselves by being kind and gentle, not ignoring our own suffering as we hold the suffering of others.
