Lojong helps us to encounter the difficulties that we have in daily life and…transform them.
Listen as Drupon Lama Dorje and Carolina Putnam talk about practicing lojong, the mind training slogans, which helps to unburden the mind of the 5 poisons so that we can enjoy the happiness of the pure mind, their upcoming program, Cultivating Compassion: A Lojong Mind-Training Retreat, as well as a a personal anecdote from Lama about being asked to go the middle of the city in Chile, having just come out of a 4-year retreat in the mountains of India.

For the past 13 years, Lama Dorje has been traveling the world teaching Dharma and meditation while also advocating for topics such as environmental regeneration and intercultural unity. He has a high focus on teaching in Latin American countries, speaks fluent Spanish, and has now become the first resident Lama of Costa Rica where he is building Dewachen World Peace Sanctuary!
