Universal Responsibility: A Buddhist View of Happiness

Universal responsibility means that concern for the welfare of others supersedes a narrow focus on the individual self. Through analysis, Buddhist philosophy reveals the limits of individual self-concern and highlights the human mind’s innate ability to care for others. In this one-night talk, Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche champions the view of bodhicitta, or putting others before oneself. For it is in caring for others and contributing to the greater good that genuine happiness is to be found. Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche is a teacher in the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism. He has lived in the United States for over twenty years and is known for his skill in communicating subtle points of Buddhism and for revealing their relevance to our modern-day life.
