Thursdays  May 18th- June 1st,  7:00-9:00 pm

Don’t miss the last of Acharya Lhakpa’s Thursday evening teachings on the Eight Verses of training the Mind by Geshe Langri Thangpa (Langthangpa).

Langthangpa’s Eight Verses provide the essence of the Kadampa teachings on mind training, descending from the Lojong teachings of Atisha. 

We aspire to positive, meaningful, and helpful relationships with our family, colleagues, friends, sangha, and beyond. And yet often our experience of these relationships is characterized by strife and difficulty. This short text provides profound instructions for working with our mind, transforming our interactions with others, and on this basis, progressing on the path to awakening.”

This is the last of the series of evening talks. There is no need to register; drop-ins welcome. There is also no reading requirement.

7:00 – 7:15  Guided meditation.
7:15  – 8:30  Talk and Q&A

Acharya Lhakpa is particularly skilled at making the dharma accessible to students of all backgrounds. His gentle erudition and spontaneous humor have made him a much beloved member of the New York Nalandabodhi sangha.
