Weekly practice of the Guru Yoga of Je Tsongkhapa. Rather than a new Dharma talk, Tenzin will lead a guided meditation.

This guided meditation is based on the Dharma talk of the 5/21/2013 episode of this radio program--"Wanting to Develop Bodhicitta." http://bit.ly/12Hp5ka. The meditation will give you a model to use in your lojong practice for developing this attainment on the path to Buddhahood.

If you need help in understanding how to do lojong meditation, please read the blog, "The Bodhisattva's Mind Training Meditation," at:  http://huff.to/RAUUUV.

The meditation assumes that you have worked on developing the attainment of "renunciation." Tenzin explained renunciation and led a guided meditation on renunciation during the following episodes of this program: http://bit.ly/MGXFzf and http://bit.ly/LJToSw. You can alterate lojong mediations on renunciation with the guided meditation of this episodes to strengthen and reinforce one another. You can also add meditation sessions on refuge practice to strengthen your reliance on Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. A guided refuge meditation is found, here: http://bit.ly/ZVxz9p
