Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche: The Altruistic Heart

05/17/2013 - 05/19/2013
9:00 am - 4:00 pm

By beginning with cultivating gentleness and trust toward ourselves, we can actually train our hearts and minds to become more and more naturally concerned with the welfare of others.  However, this process is gradual and needs the support of constant cultivation.  The “four immeasurables” or “four limitless ones”—loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and impartiality—form a series of meditative trainings designed to allow our inherent qualities of altruism to be transformed from dormant seeds to a loving presence that can be enjoyed by ourselves and everyone we are connected to.  In this program, Rinpoche will introduce the view and meditation practices of these four trainings.
