མཁན་པོ་མཆོག་ནས་བཤད་གྲྭའི་བཙུན་མ་རྣམས་ལ་བཀའ་ཆོས་གནང་བཞིན་པ། Khenpo Chonyi starts giving teachings to Shedra Nuns

On 7th of December, 2010, Khenpo Chonyi Rangdrol started his first teachings to nuns at Thrangu Tara Abbey. Khenpo taught four immeasurable thoughts. The best way of cultivating wholesome attitudes towards all sentient beings is through meditation. Among the many topics of meditation taught by the Buddha, there are four specifically concerned with the cultivation of loving-kindness, compassion, appreciative joy and equanimity. These four are called the Four Immeasurable because they are directed to an immeasurable number of sentient beings, and because the wholesome karma produced through practising them is immeasurable.
By cultivating the wholesome attitudes of loving-kindness, compassion, appreciative joy and equanimity, people can gradually remove ill will, cruelty, jealousy and desire. In this way, they can achieve happiness for themselves and others, now and in the future. The benefit in the future may come through rebirth in the fortunate realms.
With the request of shedra nuns, Khenpo start giving teachings on 21 Tara Supplication text from 8th December, 2010. There are about fifty shedra nuns at present.
