Four lessons in high quality MP3
Lesson Number 1 of 4
We experience everything through the filter of our mind, yet it is intangible and formless.
In this lesson Gelek Rimpoche draws on ancient Buddhist wisdom to illuminate the fundamental
nature of mind.
Lesson Number 2 of 4
When we die our body decays, but what happens to our mind?
In this lesson Gelek Rimpoche explains the transformation of mind during the death process and
emphasizes that what happens next very much depends on how we have lived our life.
Lesson Number 3 of 4
If mind is formless, how does it continue after death? How does reincarnation take place?
In this lesson Gelek Rimpoche follows the transformation of mind from life to life, discussing the different properties of matter and consciousness and discusses the key point that mind continues although it is impermanent. We may not remain the person we are now, but we don’t disappear.
Lesson Number 4 of 4
According to Buddhism consciousness is not something that is newly created. So who are we really and where are we headed?
In this lesson Gelek Rimpoche further explores the nature of mind and explains that since there is no new consciousness, each birth is just a change of identity, and rather than arbitrary and unconnected, it is a causal continuum based on actions in this and previous lives. That opens up a wide spectrum of possibilities and particularly allows us to eventually achieve enlightenment.
