This week, Khaydroup will focus on the First Point of Mind Training (Lojong), “Learn the Preliminaries”, starting on page 41 of “The Path to Awakening” text.
“The first step toward awakening is taking refuge in the Three Jewels: the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha. Before even taking that first step […] however, you must learn the four thoughts that turn the mind towards enlightenment: precious human birth, impermanence, karma, and the defects of samsara.” – from The Path to Awakening
