Eight Verses for Training the Mind: Talk 2

by Subhuti (2004)

This is the second in a four-part series by Subhuti on the Tibetan text 'Eight Verses for Training the Mind' by Kadampa Geshe Langri Tangpa. We continue here with the first verse, then it's full speed ahead into the second and third verses, with special consideration given to the whole notion of 'cherishing':

"Whenever I am in the company of others,

May I regard myself as inferior to all

And from the depths of my heart

Cherish others as supreme."

"In all my actions may I watch my mind,

And as soon as disturbing emotions arise,

May I forcefully stop them at once,

Since they will hurt both me and others."

Talk given at Madhyamaloka, Birmingham, 2004
