What’s the difference between trying to practice and trying to succeed? How can “success” become an obstacle to our practice of mindfulness and awareness? Earlier this year Rinpoche taught on this topic in the context of the four mindfulness practices, aka “The Four Foundations of Mindfulness” at KTD Monastery in Woodstock, NY.
If you enjoyed listening to Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche teaching on mindfulness this short video, check out our earlier post in which Rinpoche discusses How Our Mindfulness Helps Others. You’ll also find excellent explanations on mindfulness and awareness in Rinpoche’s book, Rebel Buddha: A Guide to a Revolution of Mind (A nice gift!)
