Geshe Langri Tangpa’s short and profound teaching in just eight verses, guides us in taking the essence of this fortunate human life without wasting a single moment.

If our perception of ‘problem’ or ‘suffering’ is transformed we can provide ourselves with the ultimate antidote. The eight verses by Geshe Langri Tangpa are a classic spiritual text of the lojong genre (mind training) and one of the main sources of inspiration for His Holiness the Dalai Lama in his daily meditations.
In this one month series we will look at the topic through the lens of short teachings by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, or Lama Yeshe. Eddie will also incorporate western viewpoints, and lead us in checking with our own experience with questioning and discussion.
