Description
 

This teaching by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche on the Altruistic Heart is simultaneously profound, creative, funny, practical, and extremely helpful for both beginning and advanced practitioners. Sometimes it may seem to us that our relationships with family, work colleagues, friends, and/or sangha are not workable. It may seem to us that our habitual pattern of negative self-judgment is inescapable. Rinpoche teaches us that with love and compassion everything is workable. With love and compassion everything we do produces a positive result. By cultivating gentleness and trust toward ourselves, we can train our hearts and minds to become naturally concerned with the welfare of others. The four immeasurables – loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity – are meditative trainings that transform our inherent qualities from dormant seeds to a loving presence. Speaking from the heart and from experience, Rinpoche’s teaching provides fresh and profound insights, opening our hearts and encouraging us to bring these teachings into our world. Throughout these talks, Rinpoche uses humor, examples, and analogies that make the teachings memorable and accessible. These teachings include a practice instruction for experiencing genuine love for self and other as well as several question and answer sessions. The final talk ends with a practice session with Rinpoche.

One talk and Q&A session was by Rinpoche's close associate, Acharya Lhakpa Tshering. All talks are in English. There are a total of five talks on five DVDs. Audio-only is also available as an MP3 audio download.

This teaching was part of Rinpoche's 2013 Northeast Tour, in which he gave teachings at Nalandabodhi Centers in New York, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania. The entire set of teachings given on that tour are also available as a single DVD set and as MP3 audio downloads.
