Become a better reader of Tibetan and engage more deeply with authentic Dharma teachings.
Although written a thousand years ago by Kadampa spiritual mentor Geshe Langri Thangpa, the 8 Verses remains a brilliant lojong teaching that speaks right to our hearts in these challenging times.
This a teaching that is still enthusiastically embraced by all lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. It has been taught by the 14th Dalai Lama, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, and most recently by Anam Thubten Rinpoche.
Our workbook also has additional 4-line verses from various texts having to do with compassionate development of bodhicitta (the Heart of Awakening): a prayer from the Green Tara Sadhana, a verse from chapter 9 of Shantideva’s Engaging in the Conduct of the Bodhisattva, and a prayer from the Chenrezig Sadhana.
