The Eight Verses of Thought Transformation by Langri Tangpo, beautifully illustrate the reality that in the Buddhist literature mind and heart are not separate; rather a sacred complex of one mind/heart. Seating oneself firmly in the sacredness of mind/heart allows full extension of the Bodhisattvic commitment to develop Bodhichitta, the altruistic intention to attain enlightenment for the sake of all sentient beings. The Eight Verses form a practical manual for developing the Bodhisattvic p ...

The second Field of Zen practice is Zazen. “Za” means seated, and “zen” means meditation.
