… a good heart …

Lama Sonam Tsering Rinpoche

During our group Ngondro morning session today,
before entering our personal meditation,
Rinpoche uttered words of wisdom:

The essence of the Four Boundless Wishes is a good heart.

Ngondro and Personal Accumulation Retreat 2019

In turn, we receive teachings from Lama Sonam Tsering Rinpoche,
Amy Green and Drupon Frederico Trancoso. How does that look?

We all read and study together from Kyabje Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche’s A Cascading Waterfall of Nectar. We pause to contemplate what was read and have a period to ask questions. If you are online, use the chat box to ask your question and it will be read.
