Talks

These are a series of talks you can enjoy for free. They are separated into three different themes.

Introduction to Buddhism

This series of talks provides a soft entrance into the arena of Buddhist thought by introducing the basic Buddhist tenets and practices. These clips are extracted from various teachings by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche. We are continuously working to excerpt more materials – more is on its way!

Heart-to-Heart Advice

This section contains advice that Buddhist masters offer their disciples, to be directly applied in daily life. Most of these inspirational teachings are pulled from Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche’s famous Saturday Talks, which he has delivered for over 25 years. These teachings offer us the opportunity to delve into Buddhist practice, refresh our current understanding, and deepen our experience.

Buddhist Classics & Philosophy

This section provides contemporary commentary on classic Buddhist treatises of Indian and Tibetan masters. One series of talks, for example, is on the view of the Middle Way (Madhyamaka). Based on Nagarjuna’s Root of the Middle Way, the concept of  ‘arising’ is examined in depth. We will release similar content very soon.

Suffering comes from negative emotions. Both suffering and happiness come from mental dealings. Three reasons why we become unhappy: 1. We don't appreciate what we have 2. We don't get along with others 3. We are jealous of someone's success. The best remedy is realization of Prajñaparamīta. Life goes so fast. We need to live moment by moment healthily and happily. A mental change is needed. Appreciation, forgiveness and kindness leads to happiness. The remedy of not getting along is to get along. The point is to be calm and aware, To be kind and helpful, To be clear with no clinging.

Karma is undeniably working in our daily life. Our facial expression can spread to hundreds of others. If we look to others with a genuinely kind attitude, this will spread to others and touch their hearts. Loving-kindness and compassion have much more power now than before because of technology. So does anger and greed. Who is the boss? - Humans are. Gods are those who have a genuinely kind heart. Those who have only concern for oneself are like ghosts, and will harm others including themselves.

We know that we are full of negative emotions and that this makes our hearts dry and our brains polluted. Until we gain realization there will still be some level of depression. The medicine we need is taming and training, applying the teachings in our daily life day after day and moment by moment. We need to change into becoming more soft, wise, kind, more tolerant. That there should be a feeling that one is changing in a positive direction from one day to the other, one week to the other, one month to the next.
