Our way of identifying ourselves is mistaken. We believe that the self that we normally see is our self. However, this self and all the things we normally see do not exist. Due to this ignorance we develop various kinds of mistaken appearance,  and experience various kinds of problems as hallucinations throughout this life, and in life after life, endlessly. 


     

Teachings based on the book, HOW TO TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE. 

Our happiness is as fragile as a water bubble. Impermanence spares nothing and no one; in samsara all our dreams are broken in the end. In this impure life we will never experience pure happiness unless we engage in pure spiritual practice. 

Through meditating on taking the sufferings of all living beings, we will develop a mind that is as strong and stable as a blacksmith's anvil, which does not break however hard it is struck. We need a strong and stable mind, one that is undisturbed by any hardship that life throws at us. 

While it is not habitual for us to do, putting ourselves in the other person's shoes actually brings us the peace of mind that we all wish for. 

There are people who have succeeded in completely abandoning their self-cherishing and who now cherish only others. As a result, all their problems have disappeared and their minds are always filled with joy. I guarantee that the less you cherish yourself and the more you cherish others the happier you will become. - Ven. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Our ordinary view is that we are the centre of the universe and that other people and things derive their significance principally from the way in which they affect us. This self-centred view of the world does not correspond to reality. It is precisely because we think 'I am important, I need this, I deserve that' that we engage in negative actions, which result in an endless stream of problems for ourself  & others. By practising these instructions, we develop a realistic view of the world, based on an understanding of the equality and interdependence of all living beings. Once we view each and every living being as important we will naturally develop good intentions towards them.

How Karma is Like Astrology

 If you want to know your past, look at your current experiences;

 If you want to know your future, look at your current actions.
