In this video we discuss the Tonglen meditation practice for transmuting darkness into light. Tonglen meditation is a Tibetan Buddhist practice of breathing in the suffering of the world into our heart, and breathing out love, kindness, and light. First we breathe in our own darkness, and breathe it out as light. Then we breathe in the suffering of friends and family, and breathe it out as light. Then we breathe in the suffering of the world, and breathe it out as light. As we breathe in more suffering and expel it as light, we alleviate the suffering of the world and expand our own light. Because the more love we give away the more we have.
While we may need boundaries around our finite time, energy, and attention , we should generously share our infinite capacity to love. This practice will help you share your love and light with the world.
