In our mind there are good heart and positive thoughts of loving kindness, compassion, joy, equanimity; there are also desire, hatred, ignorance, arrogance and jealousy. The karma that we repeat practicing determines which one of the two ripens first.
If our usual value system and the deepest logic at the bottom of our heart match with the correct Dharma, the first kind can have priority to ripen first; if we have carried out a lot of Dharma training, but our actual value system and the deepest logic in our mind do not match with the correct Dharma, then good heart and positive thoughts may not ripen.
~Namnang Mingjo Dorje Rinpoche
Buddha Shakyamuni's quest was to find freedom from suffering. He came to understand the truths of suffering, the causes, the possibility of release, and the path to free ourselves from suffering. He taught interested people of his time the deep truths and methods which we can learn now. We, too, can free ourselves from suffering.
Rinpoche, who is Buddha for us in our world today, understands us and helps us each step of the way. Following his teachings, we can learn to clear our minds and lives of unhealthy habits, making our current life and future lives better, and ultimately reach full attainment of an enlightened state beyond suffering.
Rinpoche teaches in person, via webcast, and via an online forum, giving intimate and timely insights and advice to help us progress.
This Meetup is to introduce you to his teachings, and to the amazing opportunities available at this time.
I look forward to meeting with you!
