Lojong, or mind training, is a common practice in all the lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. It can perhaps best be characterized as a method for transforming our mind by turning away from self-centredness and cultivating instead the compassionate attitude of concern for others.

As an example of the benefits of practicing Mind Training, Lama Zopa mentions:

"By sitting next to a person who practices this, even without talking, just sitting, you feel that the person’s heart, their mind, is so soft, so subdued, so good-hearted, so warm with loving kindness and compassion. You can feel that, even without talking, just sitting next to the person, you can feel that."

Late in 2019 Venerable Tony taught on Mind Training practices in a one day course. This time it is over two days and Tony will teach from one of the most well known Mind Training Practices, The 8 verses of Thought Transformation, a text by Geshe Langri Tangpa. To see more, then read His Holiness the Dalai Lamas explanation on the link,=.

As well as teaching on this topic, Venerable Tony will guide meditations to allow us to reach our soft and kind heart.

Ven. Tony first made contact with the Buddha dharma in Nepal and India in 1976. Following this he trained and worked as a psychiatric nurse, then in the 1980's was based at Chenrezig Institute during which time he served at different times as the cook, office worker and gardener. Following ordination as a monk in 1991 he lived for seventeen years at Nalanda monastery, France and Thubten Shedrup Ling monastery, Bendigo. He has led retreats and courses at various FPMT centres throughout the world as well as teaching in prisons and schools.
