The Universality of Suffering

March 14th, 2016

This is a talk on the first of the 2 Noble Truths in Buddhism.  The first being the universal experience of stress and suffering and unsatisfactoriness: that there isn't a life free from stress.  The second is the cause of stress which is not the situations of life but the internal force of tanha: thirst.

On Love (Version 2)

February 17th, 2016

This is the 2nd talk on applying practice to our romantic relationships.  

I reference a quote from a Tibetan teacher in this talk and this is it...
The laws that bring people together and pull them apart are like a karmic wind that we have very little control over. With relationships you don’t have much choice, when it comes, it comes. The only people who have a choice are the sublime beings who have no more karma and no more emotion. Only sublime beings can choose, "Today I’m going to have a relationship, maybe tomorrow I’m going to pause the relationship." But for people like you and me, we have no control. Even when we think I’ve had enough relationships, I’m not going to have any more—when your karmic wind blows, relationship will come out of nowhere. 
—Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche
