Eight Verses for Training the Mind: Talk 1

by Subhuti (2004)

This is the first in a four-part series by Subhuti on the Tibetan text 'Eight Verses for Training the Mind' by Kadampa Geshe Langri Tangpa. In this talk, Subhuti introduces the verses in the context of the development of Buddhism in Tibet and India. We then have a full treatment of the first verse itself:

"May I always cherish all beings,

Withe the resolve to accomplish for them

The highest good that is more precious

Than any wish-fulfilling jewel."

Talk given at Madhyamaloka, Birmingham, 2004
