Monday Night Meditation
Lama Liz Monson
November 23, 2020
Live Online: 5:00–6:30 pm EST
For the next two NDF Monday night meditations, Lama Liz will guide us through the deeper meanings found in a prayer by the Dzogchen master, Jigme Lingpa, on raising Bodhicitta.
On Monday, November 23, we will explore the problem of our entrapment in appearances (thoughts, feelings, sensory experiences), which prevents us from recognizing the vastness, tranquility, and power of our own innermost being and keeps us bound up in patterns of suffering and emotional reactivity.
On Monday, November 30, we will examine how this prayer also presents us with a powerful path to freedom from our entrapment through the profound practice of cultivating the Four Immeasurable Attitudes. Once freed from entrapment, we discover a pliability of mind and body that can enable us to respond to the suffering of the world with appropriate and timely actions.
Due to security issues, we are asking everyone to register through Zoom to access Monday night meditation.

Once you have registered, you will be sent the actual link to the Zoom meeting. It will not be necessary to register each week. You can save the meeting link, since it will be the same moving forward, and use it every week. This can be done by saving the meeting link to your calendar.
