This class is dana (generosity) based, with a suggested donation of $15. All are welcome, no one turned away for lack of funds. What is Dana?

Lojong, Tonglen, and Chöd 
at Lumbini Art Gallery in Berkeley

With Lopön Chandra

November 12th; December 17th

9:30 - 11:30 AM 
(With tea time from 11:30am-12pm)

These practices are for new and returning practitioners. In this series we will learn the Lojong slogans that teach practical and inspiring ways to cultivate relative and ultimate Bodhicitta (awakened heart). The practice of Tonglen (Sending & Receiving) meditation is found in these Bodhicitta slogans. Lojong is a powerful foundation for the practice of Chöd and Feeding Your Demons. Thus, the Namkai Norbu Chöd and the Parchangma Chöd will be practiced alternately at the end of each class. 

All are welcome. Drop-ins are welcome.
