Tonglen Meditation with Tulku Tsori (video)
Seth Auberon, Wisdom Quarterly; Tulku Tsori Rinpoche, IdealRealNet (video)
Tonglen ("sending and receiving") meditation is a Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhist practice for overcoming fear of suffering and for dissolving the tightness of our hearts. Primarily it is a method for awakening the natural compassion inherent in us all. It is advocated by the wise Buddhist nun (ani) Pema Chodron and her guru, the scandalous founder of the Shambhala cult/sect, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.
