  1. How precious a teaching, Rinpoche.
    Thank you millions

  2. I am so glad that Rinpoche explained this to us. Stay with the awareness, not the experiences: the essence of meditation is awareness. If only I had understood this before. I was confused by all my experiences and tried to chase after them instead of simply understanding that awareness is what’s essential. Thanks again for teaching us Rinpoche. Thank You!
