Event Details


« The essential message of the lojong teaching is that if we want to see a better world, we should begin by improving our own mind. For me, the lojong tradition stands as the heart of the Buddha’s message of peace. It teaches us how to regard others with the dignity and care they deserve, and also how to transcend the limitations of conventional ego-grasping. In brief, it is a guideline for our own enlightenment, leading to enlightened conduct in our own dealings with others.”

H.H. The Dalai Lama


The Seven Points of Mind Training belong to the category of teachings known in Tibetan as Lojong.  It is part of the Mahayana school of Buddhism and was composed by Chekawa Yeshe Dorje in the 12th century.

The Seven Points are further distilled into fifty-nine aphorisms that are conceived as a set of antidotes to counterbalance undesired mental habits that cause suffering. They do so by helping the practitioner to train the mind, through the cultivation of awareness and the examination of one’s intention and motivation. These teachings reveal how practitioners can transform adverse conditions into the path to enlightenment, mainly, by developing their own loving-kindness and compassion

For the first time-ever, Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche will teach this groundbreaking Buddhist text to his students and to anyone interested in practicing the path towards enlightenment.
