How to Train Your Mind Throughout the Day (Podcast Episode #013)




Today’s podcast episode is a very special two-part teaching from the Gyalwang Karmapa on the famous text known as the 8 Verses of Mind Trainingby the the renowned historical master, Geshe Langri Tangpa.
This particular text contains just eight verses on how we can live a meaningful life that is beneficial to both ourselves and others. For example, the Karmapa explains why we should consider other sentient beings as being more important than ourselves:
“Why are sentient beings so valuable? Because in order to achieve awakening we need bodhicitta, and in order to generate bodhicitta we need compassion. And because compassion must be generated with respect to sentient beings, sentient beings are infinitely precious and necessary for our awakening.”
This teaching contains many simple and practical tips for how to live a purposeful life, and how to deal with suffering and hardship in a way that transforms our being without weighing us down.
