Buddhist Perspectives, long a feature of our programme, provides the opportunity to explore key texts and commentaries from the rich Tibetan and Nalanda traditions in more extensive way.
This year begins with a perennial favourite, the eight verses of Geshe Langri Tangpa’s classic mind-training text. Instance by instance, it leads away from self-cherishing and towards cherishing others, turning negative attitudes into positive ones.
Text: Eight Verses of Mind Training, Geshe Langri Tangpa (1054-1123), Geshe Thubten Jinpa trans.
