Phakchok Rinpoche recently met with some younger family members of the Malaysian sangha. In this recording, Rinpoche answers a question from a student asking whether it was sufficient just to be a good person. Rinpoche answers that merely being “nice” is not enough, as this mentality is still tied up with ego-clinging and a hero mentality. Through our practice, we are able to generate the selflessness, dignity, and confidence needed to fully realize the nature of our minds.
In this teaching, Phakchok Rinpoche talks about how we can develop an incorruptible sense of dignity in our daily lives.
