Training the Mind

May 21 2018 Posted: 09:33 IST

In this busy world, just being Mindful makes it easier to savour the pleasures in life as they occur, helps us become fully engaged in activities, and creates a greater capacity to deal with regular chaos.

According to Geshe Lobsang, former Tibetan mink, there are nine stages that the mind can be trained to be a perfect mindful. In this workshop Geshe will use a Tibetan Traditional Mindfulness Thangka painting to show the mindfulness process.

This illustration is thousands of years old, and traditionally it is used for mindfulness meditation training in Tibetan monasteries.
