In these weekly Sunday morning teachings spanning from March 2013 to December 2014, Gelek Rimpoche elaborates on the “Tibetan Buddhism” series, with the earlier sessions on the foundational Compassion for Oneself meditations, laying the ground work for the later sessions emphasizing Great Compassion for all living beings.
The Challenge of Self-Cherishing and Ego-Grasping
If we seek the capacity to guide and support others to a better state of existing, we will need all the tools and capabilities we can get. These include a willingness and ability to confront the confusion brought about by a deeply ingrained habit of self-cherishing — of filtering life through the lens of “I” and “mine.” Self-cherishing and ego-grasping are our challenge. For this, we need a strong motivation of developing bodhimind.
