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.

Nature of Mind

Reporting on his Malaysia trip and India Buddhist conference, Rimpoche talks in detail on the issue of female ordination. Then he resumes his topic of the nature of mind, stating it is clear and lucid, lucid in the sense of unmistaken perception. Mind functions like a camera that captures a photograph perfectly, except in the case of mind, the perception becomes part of mind. Mind takes it on as part of itself. In that way mind can always learn more, up to the level of omniscience or no more learning.
