Giving and Taking on the Breath

Feeling equilibrium with all universal living beings is really powerful, as is the experience of sending all your goodness to others and bringing into yourself all their sickness and problems. The result you get is incredible joy; your mind is really balanced and you enter the middle path.
- Lama Yeshe

In this multimedia title, Lama Yeshe guides us through the Mahayana practice of tong-len where we give all our causes of happiness to others and bring all their causes of suffering into our heart. Lama impresses upon us how this practice helps us flush out our egotistical self-cherishing mind while simultaneously planting the seeds in our mind that will grow into our liberation and enlightenment. This is a presentation of Chapter Nine from Freedom Through Understanding.
