In all my deeds may I probe into my mind, and as soon as mental and emotional afflictions arise-- as they endanger myself and others-- may I strongly confront them and avert them. --Geshe Langri Thangpa

Eight Verses for Training the Mind

Eight Verses for Training the Mind

May 31, 2020-- The Prison Mindfulness Institute's mission is to provide prisoners, prison staff and prison volunteers, with the most effective, evidence-based tools for rehabilitation, self-transformation, and personal & professional development. In particular, they provide and promote the use of proven effective mindfulness-based interventions (MBI's). Their dual focus is on transforming individual lives as well as transforming the corrections system as a whole in order to mitigate its extremely destructive impact on families, communities and the overall social capital of our society. 'Eight Verses for Training the Mind' is a text available on their website. It was composed by the Buddhist Master Langri Tangpa (1054-1123). This revered text from the Mahayana Lojong (mind training) tradition offers powerful practices for cultivating a mind of compassion, wisdom, and love. (11984 reads)
