The Buddha taught that the awakened heart (bodhicitta) is the source of all happiness and good in the world. It is the essence of all awakened ones (buddhas). The basis of this awakened heart is loving-kindness and compassion. Dr. Lye will lead us in a set of profound practices of first learning to recognize and receive more fully loving-kindness and compassion for ourselves followed by cultivating the strength to naturally radiate these two awakened qualities in towards all. These practices will be primarily drawn from the ancient Mind-Training (lojong) traditions of Tibet but translated into our contemporary contexts.
