Rinpoche, could you please say something about the practice of Tonglen.
When practicing, the initial focus of working with resentment or envy or other harmful emotions and difficult situations changes and dissolves quite quickly, in less than a minute. So then how to continue as the original focus and reason for doing the practice has changed. To bring awareness back to the original harmful emotion? Please advise. Please would you consider offering an online Tonglen teaching sometime soon.
