On the occasion of the consecration of the Guru Sampa Lhündrup statue at Samye Hermitage Bali, Phakchok Rinpoche shares with us a clarification of the framework of the entire Buddhist path as it is expressed in the Lamrim Yeshé Nyingpo text, revealed by the Great Tertön Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa.
On the occassion of the birthday of our precious Mahaguru Padmasambhava, Phakchok Rinpoche shares with us Guru Rinpoche’s profound teaching from the “Sang-Ngak Lamrim,” as well as some important advice based on his own experience and what he has witnessed in others.
On this Guru Rinpoche day, I would like to share with you all some of Guru Rinpoche’s precious pith instructions, from the fourth chapter of the Dispeller of All Obstacles (Tukdrup Barché Künsel), “Quintessential, All-Embracing Wisdom” (Yangtik Yeshé Zangtal).
When we gain trust and certainty in ourselves, we cannot help but want to do something beneficial for the world. The world does not orbit around the ego anymore. Ego is an actor, always in the theater. When we discover our innate dignity, we no longer need to act. We only need to be who we really are—compassionate, kind, and dignified.
