8 Verses – Guided Walking and Meditation Tour

With Venerable Yangchen

July 27, 2024

Saturday, July 27

2:00 – 3:00 pm

Come join Venerable Yangchen and like minded friends on a walk along the 8 Verses trail at Land of Medicine Buddha..
The Eight Verses of Thought Transformation was written in the 12th century by Geshe Langri Tangpa.
This centuries old beloved mind training (lojong) text offers some of the most immediate and direct methods to transform our problems and difficult situations into the practice of compassion, and can help us get along better with others and maintain a more peaceful mind.
The trail is approximately one mile and relatively flat, winding through the Redwood forest, with benches along the way at each of the eight verses for seated reflection. We will walk to each verse, read the posted verse by Geshe Langri Tangpa and commentary by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and hear a short explanation on the essence of the practice suggested, with time for a short practice.
-Meet at the entrance of the Mahabodhi stupa at  2pm
-Duration approx 1hr. + 
-Limited to 12 people. Please register here.
Walk, reflect, and meditate.  All ages most welcome.
