Wednesdays, July 7, 2021 – August 17, 2022, 7:00 – 8:00 pm Eastern Time
We invite you to participate in weekly one-hour online Lojong Sessions. We welcome people who are interested, both experienced and new practitioners. There are no restrictions for joining in. Drop in for any session. Lojong is a mind-training practice that centers on a set of 59 slogans. The practice, which was created by Atisha (980-1052 CE), aims to help practitioners raise bodhicitta. Bodhicitta is the aspiration to awaken for the sake of all sentient beings and foster loving-kindness for ourselves and all other beings.
Each one-hour session will unfold as follows:
• Short shamatha period to settle our minds
• Recitation of the 59 slogans (text will be screen-shared)
• Focus on one of the slogans, with commentary, for contemplation and discussion
• Group discussion of the slogan
• Dedication of Merit
Please join us for these enriching sessions! We will contemplate and discuss one slogan per week, in depth, until we complete all 59 slogans on Wednesday, August 17, 2022.
