We invite you to enjoy the following audio (mp3) talks by Angie Boissevain, our teacher, but please read this message from Angie first:
I want to assure you and anyone who listens to these recordings that your job is to test whatever is said against your own experience and your own feelings. I try very hard to stay true to what I’ve studied and what I’ve felt, but I’m fallible, and I want to be sure that everyone understands that it’s up to each one of you to test what you hear, question it, doubt it if you must, and find out for yourself, and match your understanding with others’ understandings. The Dharma is vast. Shakyamuni Buddha said, ” I gave you a handful of leaves. There is a whole forest full of leaves, and I only gave you a few. ” It’s a beautiful metaphor for how huge and vast the truth of things is.
Chögyam Trungpa’s Training the Mind April 2014 – Current
We have been studying Chögyam Trungpa’s Training the Mind and Cultivating Loving-Kindness. The book presents Chögyam Trungpa’s commentary on The Root Text of the Seven Points of Training the Mind by Chekawa Yeshe Dorje (1101-1175), as translated by the Nālandā Translation Committee. The Root Text is a list of fifty-nine slogans, which form a summary instruction on the view and practical application of mahayana Buddhism.
