Lojong  A Tibetan term, literally meaning `training the mind’. A special lineage of instructions that came from Buddha Shakyamuni through Manjushri and Shantideva to Atisha and the Kadampa Geshes, which emphasizes the generation of bodhichitta through the practices of equalizing and exchanging self with others combined with taking and giving.    Gen Kelsang Tilopa will teach the methods and meditations of these practical and beneficial practices.
