Transforming the Poisons of the Mind
Lama Tsering Everest
Considered one of the biggest obstacles on the path to enlightenment, pride can manifest in different ways, some of which are obvious – such as the feeling that we are more special than others – and others that aren’t so much, such as our habitual competitiveness at work. It is pride that prevents us from perceiving the qualities of others as well as accepting our own faults. Buddha Shakyamuni and those who followed his teachings left us many methods based on pure motivation and compassion as antidotes to pride. Lama Tsering talks about how we can expose this poison of the mind and apply Buddhist methods effectively.
“Transforming the Poisons of the Mind” are teachings that formed part of the “Lotus Petals” cycle delivered during the months of October and November 2003 at Chagdud Gonpa Odsal Ling in São Paulo.
