Language: Rinpoche teaches in English

“We need mind teachings because we’re not aware of ourselves. That’s the trick! Normally, without mind teachings, our mind is completely penetrating into material objects. Most of the time, nobody’s aware, nobody’s home. If you always have somebody at home – awareness is present – that’s good. If not, then we need training.” – Lama Tharchin Rinpoche

Rinpoche taught on how our dualistic mind (Tib: sems) functions, depending on its qualities of lightness and heaviness, to create our experiences of happiness and suffering, which determines how we experience our lives right now. We can recognize the nature of our mind, which is vast like the sky, who we are from the beginningless beginning, enlightened buddha nature, rigpa awareness. Rinpoche also shared a brief history of his training as a child with Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche in Kongpo, Tibet.
