Tonglen Practice

Sunday Tonglen Practice

Each Sunday, Taylor Quilty will be leading a weekly Tonglen practice at 6 PM. The sessions will last about an hour and are open to all.

For those not familiar with Tonglen

         གཏོང་ལེན་

Pema Chodron says :

“Tonglen practice, also known as ‘taking and sending,’ reverses our usual logic of avoiding suffering and seeking pleasure. In tonglen practice, we visualize taking in the pain of others with every in-breath and sending out whatever will benefit them on the out-breath. In the process, we become liberated from age-old patterns of selfishness. We begin to feel love for both ourselves and others; we begin to take care of ourselves and others.”

Taylor says :

“I will borrow from metta meditations I have done in the past. Being present with one’s own suffering and sending light, then to a loved one, acquaintance, enemy, and finally all beings.”

Join us for this pure expression of bodhicitta!

Sangha Visioning April 7

Vajrayana Practice and Study Group

Join the Vajrayana Study and Practice Group!

Thursdays at LSLK

6:30 – 8:00 PM

The Thursday night Chenrezi practice will evolve into a Vajrayana study and practice group. We will engage in a variety of Vajrayana practices and discussion topics. Initially, we will be studying Mahamudra using Mingyur Rinpoche’s online Mahamudra course.

https://learning.tergar.org/course_library/vajrayana-online/mahamudra-course-home/

The course is summarized as follows: “In this course we will learn the most important principles and practices of the Mahamudra tradition. Our journey will be based on important texts from the Mahamudra lineage and video teachings from Mingyur Rinpoche on key points of nature of mind practice. The course will also include live webinars with Mingyur Rinpoche and Tergar instructors, discussion forums, an extensive Mahamudra workbook to deepen understanding and experience, and a range of other resources for study and practice.”

The program is open to those who have received both Ngondro transmission and pointing out instructions from a qualified lineage holder of either the Kagyu or Nyingma traditions.

We will begin each session with a short Chenrezi practice then move into a member led discussion based on materials from the online course.

To register, go to
