Brahmavihara Practices from Tibetan Buddhism

Posts: 14 Join Date: 7/14/15 Recent Posts
I just wanted to compile a list of meditations/practices from the Tibetan tradition. I think out of all the schools, Tibetan Buddhism is masterful when it comes to cultivating the brahmaviharas. Here are some examples I've come across.
  • Equalizing Self & Other
  • Exchanging Self & Other
  • Tong Len — breathing in the suffering of others and breathing out care and relief for those people.
  • Accepting Defeat and Offering the Victory (Turning the Other Cheek)
  • Passing as an Ordinary, Approachable¬†Person while Embodying the Practice
Any other contributions?

Lam Rim Chen Mo. 


Edit: Among other logical discourses, the Lam Rim goes through the logic of paramis. What I would call reliable choices.
