For November 2021 Guru Rinpoche Day message, Phakchok Rinpoche shares precious key points of instruction from the great Jamgön Kongtrül Rinpoche, from “The Essential Points of Creation and Completion that Will Benefit the Beginner Who Has Entered the Path.”
Phakchok Rinpoche shares with us some of Atisha’s Root Verses on Training the mind. This supreme mindtraining offers clear, simple and straightforward advice to anyone who wishes to practice or just improve their lives by changing their way of thinking and acting.
Firstly, on this Guru Rinpoche Day, I would like to share a personal video message. Secondly, I would also like to share some points on The Four Dharmas of Gampopa, also known as The Four Dharmas of Longchenpa.
When we remember our good heart, our sense of dignity is restored. We must always remember that we are good, even though we make mistakes. Being inherently good and making mistakes are not contradictory. Mistakes merely reflect that we are in a process of becoming who we already are; mistakes do not and cannot affect our pure nature.
