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. Presented at KTD Monastery in Woodstock, New York in 2014. Taught in English and Tibetan. Translation from Tibetan by Lama Yeshe Gyamtso. Four talks on four DVDs.
