PHL325 | PHL325d. The Good Heart Mind Training for
Community Engagement: An East-West Exploration (2 credits)

This course will examine a corpus of Buddhist teachings called lojong (mind training) from both a traditional Tibetan Buddhist and a Western approaches to applied spirituality in communities. Based on the essential Mahayana Buddhist teachings of impermanence, compassion, and the exchange of self and other, the lojong teachings are a source of guidance shared by masters of all Tibetan traditions. These teachings offer techniques and inspiration toward a deep altruism for others, which in turn trains the practitioner’s mind toward the embrace of tranquility and joy under any conditions. A combination of philosophical study, discussion, reflection, and meditation training will be utilized in the exploration of these topics.
