Lama Tsultrim Allione joins the Mindrollers for a deep chat about our current disturbing world events – how do we as world citizens see how we can help to heal, and how do we get the right perspective of our inner selves?
Part of the path of a Bodhisattva (Sanskrit term for anyone who, motivated by great compassion, has a spontaneous wish to attain Buddhahood for the benefit of all sentient beings) is not to turn away – to stay present even if it’s painful – to bear witness.
Lama teaches a breath meditation to offer the cool breeze of compassion.
Compassion and Bodhicitta (Awakened Heart) rise easily in extreme situations as in some of the heroic moments in Paris – and we can train to develop that part of ourselves.
Lama also explains the value and concept of Emptiness – It is freeing when we let go of the solidity of ourselves and the world – it can be magical.
And in the Holiday season do we have more pleasure giving or receiving?
