I have no personal experience of formal Lojong...On another forum I have just read a startling debate where one of the participants describes Lojong as " stealing the karma of others " and " thwarting their negative desires "..
Any comments ?
I didnt know you could steal someone elses trash(negative karma)
Lojong/Tonglen is essentially growing your own mind.its a practice that helps reverse ego by exchanging your self for others.its the practice of rebilitateing you.
Ideally you are not stealing,you are takeing others trash and giving them gold in return.
