Join us in studying the special techniques of mind training (“lojong” in Tibetan), which allow us to transform problems into happiness. Together we will discuss the profound statement by Lama Zopa Rinpoche that we should “learn to like problems as much as ice cream” and explore how this remarkable statement can be implemented through wise and insightful techniques.
