What are the Benefits?
It is rare to be able study, reflect, and meditate on the Buddhist teachings in a truly authentic way. Tara’s Triple Excellence provides this precious opportunity, guiding us step by step through the entire Buddhist path.
How can TTE integrate Buddhist teachings into our lives?
TTE, above all else, was designed to be practical. Its objective is to incorporate and integrate the Tibetan Buddhist path in our daily lives in order to make life-transforming improvements. To achieve lasting transformation, TTE seamlessly interweaves the three essential activities that are crucial for us to transform our minds: Study, Reflection, and Meditation.
To bring about life-changing behaviors, meditation is essential to tame our busy minds. But that is only the beginning. We must also develop a variety of skillful methods that we can readily employ when facing life’s challenges and obstacles. It is this integration of study, reflection, and meditation that allows us to obtain lasting life-changing results. This is how we can move away from petty tension and stress that all too often unnecessarily overwhelms us in the short-term toward long-term tranquility, kindness, and clarity. With TTE, you will learn to be the calm in the storm, staying centered no matter what is swirling around you.
With the combination of thorough instruction and your own daily effort, you will soon bear the fruits of meditation practice: calmness, kindness, and clarity. Just as an apple tree can only grow from an apple seed, it is said that a mind of wisdom and a heart of impartial loving-kindness can only grow from the seeds of positive qualities that have been sown through practice.
Throughout this training, we experience the challenge of looking directly into ourselves. To be sure, this self-examination isn’t easy. However, you’ll experience the joy of releasing the weight and burden of our old painful habits. Once we strip away our accumulated baggage, we are in a position to access the love and wisdom that constitutes our fundamental nature.
