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.

Avoiding Negativities

Buddhism in a nutshell is avoiding negativities, building positivities and taming the mind. If not purified negativities make us suffer, in the long run leading to birth in the lower realms. By recognizing the three poisons we can begin to purify our mind, especially of ignorance. The mind becomes what it takes in, therefore we are the only ones that have the power to tame our own mind. The best way to do that is by using the Three Higher Trainings, Morality, Concentration and Wisdom.
