Call in to speak with the host


Weekly podcast of the Guru Yoga of Tsongkhapa. This is a powerful method of clearning away obstructions to your progress on the path to Buddhahood. It helps you to purify your mind of negativity and accumulate merit.

The practice will begin with one of the songs of a Buddhist singer/songwriter formerly featured on the The Life of Universal Loving.

This week, Tenzin will discuss what are called "the endowments of a fortunate human rebirth.",  In the Guru Yoga of Tsongkhapa, we say to Tsongkhapa "abandoning the 8 worldly concerns, you made your leisure and endowment meaningful." Last week Tenzin explained the eight worldly concerns. Tenzin will explain what are the endowments of a fortunate human rebirth and what it means to say that Tsongkhapa made his endowment meaningful.

The podcast will end with another song by a Buddhist practitioner formerly featured on The Life of Universal Loving.
