The 7th Lojong is the last part of the “Seven Special Mind Trainings” as explained in the Teachings of Dzogchen, the “Innermost Essence” or Dzogchen Nyingthig, belonging to the Man ngag or Upadesha series. The 7th training is a very special one and can only be found in the Dzogchen Teachings. It is called “Training the mind by means of meditative stability of the state beyond thought”.
“Whoever practices these seven trainings will easily succeed, first of all to enter the deep and swift path of Atiyoga, then to put into practice without difficulty its fundamental points, and finally to integrate his or her mind with the teachings. Because of the qualities and special functions of these seven trainings, all Atiyoga teachers in recent times usher beginners into the Ati teachings through their practice.” Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, The Precious Vase, Instructions on the Base of Santi Maha Sangha
“Training the mind by means of meditative stability in the state beyond thought is a supreme method in order to start on the path of contemplation”. Jigmed Lingpa in “The Stairway to Liberation”
In this course Oliver Leick will briefly explain the first six mind trainings, and will then explain how to practice the 7th Lojong. The course is restricted to people who have received the transmission of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu and are actual members of the Dzogchen Community.
