Ngakma Nor’dzin and Ngakpa ’ö–Dzin will explain how to engage with the slogans as a daily practice through exploring the Seven Points as a progressive path.

Mind Training —lojong— offers a complete approach to daily Buddhist practice in 59 slogans. The 12th century Nyingma monk, Chekhawa Yeshé Dorje, synthesised the slogans into seven points. These present the base, path, and fruit of the vehicles of Buddhism; they teach how to recognise and evaluate progress; how to uphold practice commitment; and offer supportive advice. Slogan 12: ‘Drive all blames into one.’ When lying on the ground, looking up at the horse, the realised rider takes the blame for being thrown.

Ngakma Nor’dzin’s book, Battlecry of Freedom, examines Mind Training in depth. Her commentaries vividly expand on the point of the slogan — bringing them to life through stories that use horse riding as an analogy for riding and training the mind. These clearly and delightfully illustrate how to stay in the saddle of Mind Training, in order to ride the joys and challenges of everyday life for the benefit of everyone and everything, everywhere. Sets of slogan cards are available to accompany the book.
