Gaining Happiness in a Changing World

In life, we will experience living and dying, changing feelings, fluctuations in wealth, gain and loss of power, as well as highs and lows in status. The nature of objects is impermanence as constant change.

That’s why we should enhance our spirituality and develop compassion and wisdom in life. Only by doing this can we be lead on to the path of liberation and gain ultimate happiness.

~ Sangpo Rinpoche

The Nature of the Mind

The nature of the mind is empty, so no phenomenon is being created or destroyed.
The nature of the mind is radiant and clear, so all phenomena are neither defiled nor immaculate.
The nature of the mind is compassionate and immeasurable, so it is impartial and without discrimination.
Every single thought arising in the mind makes all the difference between success and failure.
~Khenpo Sangpo Rinpoche~

The Nature of Greed

The nature of greed arises from the fact that the needs are few but the wants are many. One is never content with what one has, always attempting to possess more and more. Therefore, we should learn to treasure what we have, and not try to obtain what we don’t have by force.

~ Khenpo Sangpo Rinpoche ~

Understanding the Law of Causality

Try not to cling to things or situations that we see in the present. The persons who you always want to get rid of now or hate the most may one day become the ones who bring you the greatest accomplishments. Whereas the ones you love and do not want to separated from may be the enemies of past lives. If we understand, and are deeply convinced of the law of causality, we will naturally know how to create positive karmic affinities with others, accepting the changing and impermanent nature of life, and thus stay at ease under all circumstances.

~Khenpo Sangpo Rinpoche ~

Avoiding the Trap of Hatred

When someone harbors resentment, he or she is creating the causes of suffering, and is even unaware of the painful consequences of negative karma. Therefore, we should be compassionate to that person and not fall into the same trap of hatred.
