Lojong


(tib.: lo jong) Literally it means mind training. Mind training tradition came to Tibet with Atisha who regarded these teachings as most precious. They are instructions developing the Mind of Enlightenment and are adorned by three qualities:

They are transforming selfishness into concern for others. (This way they are eliminating the core obstruction to our happiness and spiritual progress.)

They are transforming adverse situations into advantages. (They see the real enemy in disturbing emotions.)

They encourage us to watch all phenomena as like illusions.
