The Awakened Heart: What’s Love Got to Do With It?
First and Third Tuesdays 7:00 pm -8:30 pm CT September 5th through December 5th
A teaching on love, clearly revealing four stages in the cultivation of a heart full of love as it opens to love of self, love of others, and participating in the expansively open heart of the Buddhas, with a special connection to Avalokiteshvara and Kuanyin — the embodiments of awakened, unconditional love. Based on Tulku Thondup’s popular book, The Heart of Unconditional Love, this course also features a very short sādhana practice text written by Lama Rigzin and approved by Tulku Thondup, with whom she first studied in 1981 while in Cambridge. Taught here for the very first time, and suitable for beginners and seasoned students alike, this beautiful practice is a portal both to the cultivation of love and to the foundational elements of all sādhana practice.
