The Inner Job Description Card (Mindfulness Practice Tool) was created to help those offering service to FPMT track their progress throughout the day as they attempt to develop the inner professional and subdue outer expressions of ignorance, anger, attachment, and selfish motivation. As Lama Zopa Rinpoche explains, “You have all these external professions—how to do this, how to do that from school, college, university—but without inner professionalism: how to live life, how to do everything mentally, how to do everything—business, professional activity, whatever you do—with pure attitude, positive mind, non-ignorance, non-anger, non-attachment, especially with the non-selfish mind.”

During the 2014 CPMT meeting in Bendigo, Australia, François Lecointre led a talk and meditation on the Inner Job Description. All are welcome to watch and participate via YouTube:
