Expectations and Appreciation

In this short video recorded in India, Mingyur Rinpoche gives the Tergar community an in-depth look at the first few weeks of his retreat. He talks in inspiring terms about how he worked with the expectations he brought with him on retreat and the near-death experience that transformed his resistance and attachment. You can discuss this teaching in the Monthly Teachings Forum under the topic Expectations and Appreciation.
