When you do tong-len, tong is giving our merits and happiness to others; len is taking others’ suffering and negative karma on yourself, right onto the self-cherishing thought and destroying it.
When you do this meditation, it is the most excellent thought transformation, the best psychology, the best treatment for the mind and through that for the body. Taking on the suffering of others and giving your happiness to others is the quickest way to generate bodhicitta, the quickest way to abandon the oceans of samsaric suffering and the quickest way to achieve full enlightenment—having finished all the mistakes, the gross and subtle defilements and having generated all the realizations.
We are delighted to welcome Venerable René Feusi back to LMB to lead a one day retreat on the practice of Tong-len. This is a rare opportunity to spend a day with one of our most inspiring teachers of meditation. His pure joy in the practice of meditation is uplifting. He has been practicing and teaching meditation for twenty five years.
