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.
Four Aspects of the Truth of Cessation and Path of Cessation
Rimpoche begins with talking on bodhimind, drawing attention to the 22 types of bodhimind and the shepherd like bodhimind. Then he continues with the 16 aspects of the Four Noble Truths, in terms of the four of the Truth of Cessation, which are: abandonment of suffering, pacification of the causes of suffering, satisfaction because it is helpful, joyful and liberated and definite emergence, because suffering can never return. Rimpoche concludes with the 4 aspects of the Truth of the Path. The first is the path, which directly encounters emptiness, it’s suitability, because it is the correct path that serves as antidote to the afflictions, it is an achiever because of its unmistaken realizations and it is deliverance, since it is irreversible.
