Making Life Meaningful: The Indo-Tibetan Psychology of Renunciation

The Gradual Path to Awakening (Lam Rim) is marked by three major realizations: Renunciation, Compassion and Correct View of Reality. In this series of four classes, Dr. Neale discusses the themes of the Four Mind Turnings of the Preciousness of Life, Death, Causality, and Conditioned Existence that serve as the basis for the development of renunciation towards compulsive living. Lectures are supplemented by role-modeling visualization adapted from the classical Tibetan style.  These themes and their corresponding realization serve as a prerequisite for the next installment of classes that focus on the Awakened Heart of compassion. Recorded live at the Tibet House.
