We are happy to announce that Trinlay Rinpoche will be giving teachings during the two mornings preceding the initiations of the 13th and 14th of August.
In addition, we would like to share with you some quotes from Karmapa’s teachings, taken from the book “A Collection of Advice”.
We hope they can inspire you daily!
The Team of Montchardon
Equanimity helps the mind to be stable and calm. So what we do is bring in our mind all of the favorable circumstances, unfavorable circumstances, favorable friends, unfavorable friends—bring them all together and then just try to view all of them as neutral, middle ground.
This then gives the mind some time to relax, to have focus. Only then can we attempt to practice compassion and loving kindness, and of course gradually the sympathetic joy, or the part where we can rejoice.
