Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche – Taking Care of Our Mind

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FoX4obJaPtI[/youtube]

“Our mind is our most precious and valuable resource, isn’t it? Because through this mind we experience every single moment of our life, right? We are relying on this mind to be happy, and we are relying on it to be stable. Emotionally stable? Is that an oxymoron? (laughter)

“We rely on this mind for us to be emotionally stable . . . kind . . . thoughtful . . . successful. Successful in our work, and in our relationships. We rely heavily on this mind. In everything we do . . . for spontaneity, creativity, we rely on this mind.

“But usually we are not taking good care of this mind. We spend more time on taking care of our crappy car . . . .”
