In this engaging public talk, Lama Kathy Wesley takes her listeners on a concise but profound tour of the essence of the Buddha’s teachings. Beginning by clearly explaining our fundamental nature of mind as a source of unending joy, she goes on to show how we fail to recognize this joy— clearly explaining the nature and characteristics of our confusion. She then presents the essential points of an array of practices to tame our minds, dismantle selfishness, and promote equanimity, patience, and generosity. She gives practical ways to begin in the context of our busy lives and concludes with an inspiring aspiration. This talk includes a lively Q&A session. One talk on one DVD.
