Eight Verses for Training the Mind: Talk 4

by Subhuti

This is the last in a four-part series by Subhuti on the Tibetan text 'Eight Verses for Training the Mind' by Kadampa Geshe Langri Tangpa. Subhuti begins with a quick summary of the show so far, then we are into the final two verses and drawing closer to the essence of practice and wisdom this great text embodies.

"In brief, directly or indirectly,

May I give all help and joy to my mothers,

And may I take all their harm and pain

Secretly upon myself."

"May none of this ever be sullied

By thoughts of the eight worldly concerns.

May I see all things as illusions

And, without attachment, gain freedom from bondage."

Talk given at Madhyamaloka, Birmingham, 2004
