Shambhala Sun Audio: Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche on Mindfulness, Love, and Relationship

dpr-wordpressAs we gear up for this year’s “Mindfulness, Love, and Relationship: What the Buddhists Teach” program in NYC, we thought we’d share some of the great teachings on the subject, from the authors who’ll be there. In this case, we present audio of  Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, one of the foremost scholars and meditation masters of his generation in the Nyingma and Kagyu schools of Tibetan Buddhism. This is good, clear, you-can-do-it stuff; just click the players below to listen.

This talk is from last summer’s Love and Relationships program, held at the Omega Institute, and co-sponsored by the Shambhala Sun. Joining Rinpoche on the panel were John Tarrant, Polly Young-Eisendrath, and Sylvia Boorstein, all of whom will be at this year’s Mindfulness, Love, and Relationship weekend in New York City from April 3rd to April 5th.

To attend, visit the Omega Institute, here.

And thanks for listening to Shambhala Sun Audio.

    Thanks for posting these clips. I particularly appreciated the mention of relationships as they reflect our goodness and imperfections.

    I had such a dirty mirror before and I'm so glad it's clean now. I've learned from my experiences from the past.

    Rich teachings!

    Does not relationship depend first on the sense of separation? While relationship may help adjust the locally identified "self", is it true? Is relationship a way beyond separation? How does relationship help us discover, as Rinpoche says, "who we really are?"

    Great clips, thanks to all concerned.
    esp Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, he's a funny man!
    p.s. not sure what you mean Ez-wa but i would also like hear more about how to learn better from people being our mirrors.
