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 Faculty of Aspiration

Motivation directs our mind to whatever we want to, so it is good to choose positive purposes. Aspiration, first of the five object-ascertaining mental faculties (along with belief, mindfulness, concentration and wisdom), is the drive for positive action. For meditation, aspiration is needed to even get started, before good results draw you more into wanting to meditate.
