      The compassionate wish that all beings might be separated from suffering and its causes is at the very heart of all Buddhist teachings and practices. And the highest expression of this wish is the whole-hearted dedication of oneself to the welfare of all beings, and the intention to achieve full spiritual awakening for their sake.

      This supremely altruistic motivation is known as the precious bodhicitta, and during this weekend course, Jon Landaw and Venerable Drimay—two long-time teachers of the Discovering Buddhism program—will introduce participants to some of the most powerful techniques for cultivating this precious motivation.

      Media Lab’s January Special

      Radical Compassion 
      By Venerable Tenzin Chogkyi - 4 DVD Set

       

      Radical Compassion Tenzin Chogkyi Dharma DVD Tibetan Buddhist Buddhism DVDs

       

      "WARNING: This teaching may be hazardous to your ego!"

      This 4 DVD set of teachings is based on Geshe Chekawa's "Seven-Point Thought Transformation," the most well-known of the Tibetan lojong, or thought transformation, texts. Ven. Tenzin Chogkyi exposes the challenges, the practice, and the glorious benefits of becoming a "Bodhisattva Warrior." Drawing from her real life experience of being "alone with her mind" during 6 years in solitary retreat she reveals the teachings that impacted her the most. Included are explicit instructions and guided mediations on the ego shredding practice of Tong Len. This recording is of a retreat given at Land of Medicine Buddha in Janurary 2007. "Change now! The time is now to exchange self for others…this is challenging, against the grain, not for the faint hearted, if it goes down without a tremor you're not doing it right, expect for your buttons to be pushed but be brave- this is the way to enlightenment!"
