Watch Phakchok Rinpoche’s Teaching at Harvard Divinity School

Phakchok Rinpoche recently visited Harvard Divinity School, where he taught on “What Does It Mean to Awaken Our Dignity?” as part of his 2023 Awakening Dignity North American book tour. Rinpoche explains that dignity is an innate quality we all have, manifesting when we realize that our nature is pure. This understanding gives us confidence in our wholeness and completeness, allowing us to face life’s challenges with compassion and wisdom.

Phakchok Rinpoche’s book, Awakening Dignity: A Guide to Living a Life of Deep Fulfillment, contains reflections, examples, and simple meditations—such as embracing adversity and practicing compassion—Awakening Dignity to embody our fundamental dignity fully.
