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 4 of the series, Jnanavaca goes deeper into the topsy-turvy world of the Eight Verses, with the radical suggestion that our greatest friend may just be our enemy.

Talk given at the London Buddhist Centre, 2021.

Fourth verse

"When I see ill-natured people,

Overwhelmed by wrong deeds and pain,

May I cherish them as something rare,

As though I had found a treasure-trove."
