In this eight-part series, various speakers explore radical ways of training the mind, based on eight pithy and challenging verses from the Tibetan tradition.

These active reflections offer a number of attitudes you can take up in order to overcome self-clinging.

In part six of the series, Akashamitra takes a look at one of the most difficult trainings offered in this approach. How can we find an opportunity for growth in that most upsetting situation - when someone we've trusted lets us down?

Talk given at the London Buddhist Centre, 2021.

Sixth verse

"Even when someone I have helped,

Or in whom I have placed great hopes

Mistreats me very unjustly,

I will view that person as a true spiritual teacher."
