In these 57 weekly Sunday morning teachings from January 2012 to February 2013, Gelek Rimpoche introduces Buddha’s transformative message through the goals and methods of Tibetan Buddhism, helping us to see, session by session, the personal applicability of Buddha’s life-changing realizations for our lives today.
Purpose and Results of Spiritual Practice
The short term goal of spiritual practice is to have a good future life. Achieving anything for this life is not spiritual, even being a good person. The Hinayana goal is to stop suffering for oneself, while Buddhahood is the ultimate achievement of total knowledge to be of service to others. It is the eradication of all negativities. It can be achieved by using the tools of learning, analyzing and meditating. Learning is more than gathering information, and must be experiential learning leading to quality. Analyzing means to check what we hear against reliable sources.
