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.

Essence of Tibetan Buddhism 28

Nature of Mind

The nature of the mind is clear and lucid, gets clear and unmistaken picture of any object and has the capacity to perceive anything. You become what you perceive and feel. Taming the mind means moving the mind in the right direction. It is like putting in the desired colored light bulb into a crystal chandelier, so it appears in that color. Mind and mental faculties are of the same entity, yet different isolates. They are one with separation. Therefore make positive emotions and insights part of your mind. Ultimately this mind can become Buddha. Therefore, the main task is to understand and tame our mind.
