Essence of Tibetan Buddhism

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 Concentration and Wisdom

In this last talk of the year Rimpoche directs awareness to the main essence of spiritual practice: avoiding negativity, building positivity and taming the mind by becoming compassionate and caring. He then concludes with a short description of the mental faculty of concentration, which is built on the previous mental faculties of aspiration, conviction and remembrance. It is single-pointed focus on any object.

Wisdom, the last of the 5 object ascertaining mental faculties is the wisdom of emptiness, which is not nothingness, nor random fantasies, but precise functioning of everything, but in an interdependent relationship with everything else, empty of self-existence.
