The Mahayana path is characterized by the Bodhisattva’s aspiration to become a Buddha for the sake of all beings.
The means to develop and enhance this extraordinary attitude are revealed in a genre of teachings, at once practical and radical, known as ‘mind training’, or ‘thought transformation’ (lojong). Dharmarakshita’s “Wheel of Sharp Weapons” is one of the most esteemed mind training teachings, and a powerful weapon to cut through our true enemies – the self-grasping and selfcherishing which oppose altruistic intent and prevent lasting happiness and peace.
The text on which ven. Geshe Tenzin Tenphel’s teaching will be based is part of the Basic Program curriculum. Therefore, these teaching are a great opportunity to get to know the contents of this study program, which will have a new start in September 2018.
