Larry Advertises the Dharma

Eight Verses of Training the Mind and Heart
Lama Yeshe Ling - Toronto
with Acharya Ngawan Chokley and Dr. Gareth Sparham

Please please share word of this event along to your friends and family in Toronto.

This succinct 8 verse "mind training" text has been chosen for its most immediate and practical advice for how to improve the quality of life - less suffering and greater happiness and fulfillment. It is also a text the Dalai Lama meditates on each day and he says "It could be said that The Eight Verses for Training the Mind contains within them the entire essence of the Buddha's teachings in a distinct form."

Ngawang Chokley is a scholar-monk from Kopan Monastery in, and Dr. Gareth Sparham, having been a monk and scholar for several decades at the Dialectics Institute in Dharmsala is now a professor a U. Michigan. Ngawang and Gareth will teach from this text, lead meditation, and stimulate discussion on how to apply this to our daily lives.
