Our Guide in Difficult Times

From a series of tweets by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo:

Ngundro, or preliminary practice consists of several parts:

Refuge, or entering the gate of protection of the “three precious ones” – the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. Bodhicitta, the practice of the six perfections and the generation of the aspiration to realize Enlightenment. The offering of […]

Like Milk with Water

In the Posture of Honesty

An excerpt from a teaching called the Seven Limb Puja: Viewing the Guru by Jetsunma Ahkon Norbu Lhamo on October 18, 1995

We should always be in the posture of confession. We love confession, don’t we? It’s so Catholic! Well, no, we do it differently here. In Buddhism confession need not be heard by […]
