Video Teaching Description

Language: English

In this short video teaching, Rinpoche answers a student’s question about the difference between confidence, pride, and dignity. Unfortunately, our confidence is usually mixed with pride. When it is genuine, confidence manifests as dignity. We can first recognize and then slowly release the pride–but this takes time. Genuine dignity pervades our experience at all times, regardless of our status or position.

This video is part of Phakchok Rinpoche’s teachings held during Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche’s 42nd Annual Fall Seminar at Ka Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery in 2022 where Rinpoche taught upon The Bardo Thödol, The Liberation Upon Hearing.
