Changing with Wisdom: Overcoming the Ego
“The moment we let go of our obsessive concern for our own welfare, our mind naturally relaxes and becomes lighter.” – Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyasto Rinpoche
During the special day course, Gen Gomchen will explain the profound practice of exchanging self with others that comes from the ‘Lojong’ or ‘mind-training’ tradition. By taking these teachings to heart in meditation and practically integrating them into our daily lives we will gain the ability to solve our own problems, improve our relationships with others and gradually move towards actualizing our full potential for deep inner transformation.
Sessions will consist of a combination of teachings and meditation with an opportunity to ask questions. The course will be based principally on the book, How to Transform Your Life, by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, which presents a complete set of instructions on how to transcend our ordinary attitudes and develop a powerful mind with which we can bring immense benefit to others.
