Does anyone here have experience with tonglen meditation?

I had my first experience with this meditation technique today, and it was unexpectedly powerful.
Similar experiences?


  1. Thank you for making me look this up. It sounds like a very interesting type of meditation. I read several Tibetan books and have wondered as to exactly how they absorb the pains and angers of the world and dispel them and now it makes sense. I’ve tried breathing in good energy and then dispersing it to the world but this sounds like more of a challenge and I’ll have to get back to you on how it works out. Sounds like a good way to develop compassion and rid yourself of little anxieties. For anyone who wants to know more I posted a link. Thanks for the great question!
