In honor of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche's birthday today, Guru Rinpoche Day of the fifth lunar month, we are offering Rinpoche's teaching on How to Manifest Joy in Our World. Given at Open Secret Bookstore, San Rafael, California, November 17, 2008. Rinpoche teaches on the prayer:
“Whatever joy there is in this world,
All comes from desiring others to be happy;
Whatever suffering there is in this world,
All comes from desiring myself to be happy.”
