Buddhist Practice of ‘Tonglen’ – developing Great Love and Compassion for all beings

Ven. Geshe Sangey Thinley, fondly known as Geshe-la, is the resident spiritual teacher at the Jam Tse Dhargyey Ling Buddhist Centre in Whangarei New Zealand. This teaching was translated through Skype by Virginia Blum, who is based in New York. Sunday 12th May 2013.
It is based on the 7th Verse of the text “Eight Verses of Training the Mind” written by Geshe Langri Thangpa.

7. In brief, directly or indirectly,
I will offer help and happiness to all my mothers,
And secretly take upon myself
All their hurt and suffering.
