Mindfulness For Awakening, Mindfulness for Everyday Difficulties


Friday, Oct 26, 7:00 – 9:00 pm
Sat & Sun, Oct 27 & 28, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm


Isn’t it true that everything we do is centered around being happy and avoiding suffering? Yet it is also true that the lasting happiness we seek resides in the nature of mind. That being the case, it becomes central to our lives and our path to sharpen our understanding of this nature and to know the methods for realizing it. This highlights the importance of overcoming obstacles to realizing the nature of mind and learning how to use all of our confusion as an essential part of the solution.

These issues are at the very heart of instructions transmitted by great masters, like Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche. Jim Scott has agreed to join us in reviewing Khenpo Rinpoche’s own words in giving these instructions which frequently take the form of commentaries to songs of realization. And yes, we will sing them too.

NEW! In addition to leading us in singing the songs of realization, Jim will show a video of Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche giving a detailed explanation of how to deal with illness and related issues skillfully. Rinpoche’s explanation is based on the song Eight Cases of Basic Goodness Not to Be Shunned, by the great Tibetan Yogi Gotsangpa.

Jim Scott is a student and practitioner of the Kagyu lineage, following Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche around the globe for some thirty years. He is well known for both his translation work and his musical compositions of the songs of Milarepa. As with Khenpo Rinpoche, songs are integral to his teachings. Jim teaches annually at Pullahari Monastery in Nepal, and in Europe.
