By settling your mind and investigating the true nature of your body, feelings, mind, and the world around you, it is possible not only to connect with a natural calmness, but also to uncover profound insights that bring freedom from suffering. Ancient teachings, yet still as effective as ever at calming and awakening the mind. When such revered teachings are delivered by Ponlop Rinpoche, the depth of the presentation would be enough. But add to that the astonishing irony of Rinpoche’s teaching metaphors, and students expecting a typical talk on mindfulness drop the presuppositions they came in with, and listen with renewed interest.
