Lions Roar : July 2016
TYLERMULLINS WHO’S REALLY TO BLAME? It may not be who you expect, says Buddhist teacher Judy Lief. IN THE SLOGAN PRACTICE of the lojong (mind training) teachings, we step-by-step liberate the trapped energy recruited to the project of prop- ping up ego. According to slogan twelve—”Drive all blames into one”—most of our problems can be traced to one underlying cause: ego fixation. Until we start to deal with this level, we will only be treating symptoms. With this slogan we take responsibility for our own actions. Instead of hiding our mistakes, we face them and look for their underlying cause. And the more we look, the more we understand the power of ego-clinging and the damage it does. We begin to have a glimpse of what a difference it makes when we are not carrying around the hidden agenda of ego. This slogan is also helpful when we are deal- ing with groups, where it is common to get into struggles about who is to blame, as though finding the guilty party will solve the problem. With this slogan you take on the blame yourself, no matter what the case. By doing so, the process can shift from one of finger-pointing to one of problem- solving. This does not mean that you do not try to discover where specific problems arise. In fact, you are more apt to figure this out, since you have removed the need for others to cover up or to defend themselves from attack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’S ROAR | JULY 2016 25
