"Training the Mind and Awakening the Heart" 

The Lojong teachings

Lojong in Tibetan means “mind training”.  It is revered throughout Tibet as containing the very essence of the great Mahayana Buddhist teachings.   The Lojong teachings in and of themselves are said to be able to lead one to enlightenment, an awakening to ultimate reality itself.   They are grounded in and evoke “Bodhichitta” – the mind and heart of enlightenment.   Although this awakened mind and awakened heart is literally indescribable a few things can be said about it.   Awakened awareness is “the view from the mountaintop.  Without that perspective we will always be looking up from the valley rather than understanding the vista from the mountaintop.
