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.

Mental Faculties of Pliancy and Conscientiousness

Rimpoche first talks about physical and mental pliancy is a joy that removes all obstacles to meditation, making body and mind totally serviceable and powerful. It is a result of concentration and leads to even better concentration.

Rimpoche then defines the mental faculty of conscientiousness as non-attachment, non-hatred and non-ignorance, related to enthusiasm and mindfulness, which keeps us out of trouble and on task to fulfill our purposes. It corrects past negativities and prevents future ones and is the basis of all spiritual attainments.
