Lojong Practice

«LOJONG PRACTICE (or the seven points of mind training)
The LOJONG practice (or mind trainning) has 2 elements:
the practice – the tonglen meditation
the teachings – that comes in a form of slogan

Lojong: the basic notion of lojong is that we can make friends with what we reject, what we consider “bad” in ourselves and in other people. At the same time we could learn to be generous with what we see as “good”.
Traditionally this “something”is callled BODHICCITTA, or awakened heart.
The basic message of the Lojong teachings is to reverse the usual pattern, which is to escape. If an experience is pleasant usually we want to grab it, to make it last. The lojong teachings encourage us to to think of other people and wish for them to feel that. Give away what you most want.
“Gain and victory to others, loss and defeat to myself”, it doesn’t mean to become a masochist, but that we can open the heart.»
