The Everflowing Nectar of Bodhicitta
The Mahayana Thought Training Annihilating the Demon of the Self-Cherishing Mind
What follows is an eight-verse teaching that contains the entire technique for transforming the mind into relative and absolute bodhicitta. It was composed by Langri Tangpa Dorje Senghe, a disciple of the virtuous friend, perfect in all knowledge, Kadampa Potowa Rinchen Säl, who in turn was a disciple of the holy lamp of the teachings, Atisha. Of his guru Potowa’s eight heart-sons, Langri Tangpa was the only one to receive the special instructions on exchanging oneself with others.
