Regardless on who we are, or what our plans and goals are, life goes on. Phakchok Rinpoche, in this audio clip, suggests that we remind ourselves of this fact.
Phakchok Rinpoche advises listeners on the best way to enter the Tibetan Vajrayana path by relying on three pillars to build a strong foundation.
The point of meditation is not to be calm. Instead, in this video teaching, Phakchok Rinpoche reminds us that the point of meditation is to change!
Inspiration for our meditation training is a boost for our practice. We love to think we can be independent and do everything by ourselves, but is that really realistic? Do we have a good track record?
“Mind” is the word we should recollect repeatedly and contemplate. The word “mantra” has one general meaning as an instrument of thought.
Phakchok Rinpoche continues discussing the types of mind. Finally, he gives very detailed meditation instructions including tips on correct posture and eye position.
Vision and mission are terms we know well from our business and life planning. But often, when we begin to meditate, we don’t have any sort of a vision.
When we learn meditation, we need to start with the base, or ground. First, we should learn not just how to meditate, but also why we need to meditate.
Perception has power and it can be surprisingly strong. Normally, perception and habits work together to create a mistaken view of our world.Perception always comes from first not knowing. Perception is the mind’s expression or its reflection. It does not exist out there somewhere in the world.
