My teachings today will be the heartfelt teachings from my loving Guru, secret Yogi, Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche. He said, remembering our motivation is most important, and that the five fingers of the hand can be used to represent our motivation.
Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche
On this Guru Rinpoche Day, I would like to share with you a pith instruction which my master, Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche repeatedly uttered. It is my hope that this heartfelt advice helps you and guides you on the path. I suggest that you keep this reminder near you so that you are constantly watching your mind.
Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche explained that in the Ngak kyi Sojong, we are mending and restoring the commitments of the vows of the individual liberation in accordance with the Hinayana system, the bodhisattva trainings in accordance with the Mahayana system, and the samaya commitments in accordance with the Vajrayana system.
Before I continue with Śāntideva’s Bodhisattvacaryavatara: The Way of the Bodhisattva, I would like to share a teaching given to me by my root teacher, Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche, a great Dzogchen master.
