Nalandabodhi Seattle and Nitartha Institute are offering several study options this fall.
A new Thursday class begins Oct. 10 exploring the practice of lojong, or mind training. Nick Vail, a longtime student of Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, will host an informal book discussion group on Training the Mind and Cultivating Loving-Kindness, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s commentary on the classical 59 lojong (mind training) slogans. Sessions will include sitting meditation, songs of realization and good conversation about the meaning of these pithy and profound teachings. All are welcome; donations welcome.
