Teachings to the Malaysian Youth: Is Being Good Enough?
Phakchok Rinpoche recently met with some younger family members of the Malaysian sangha. In this recording, Rinpoche answers a question from a student asking whether it was sufficient just to be a good person. Rinpoche answers that merely being “nice” is not enough, as this mentality is still tied up with ego-clinging and a hero mentality. Through our practice, we are able to generate the selflessness, dignity, and confidence needed to fully realize the nature of our minds.
