Tulku Tsori Rinpoche gives his Miami Florida students instructions on how to practice the Dharma in their daily lives. In this video, he discusses compassion, karma, meditation, impermanence, illusion, emptiness, Dzogchen practice.
He speaks about the “I” as a physical form, how to contemplate one’s own mind, what is ‘me”, who is this I. Death. Clinging to a name, fighting, claiming, MY mother, MY father, MY house… Does that I really exist? Contemplate and meditate to discover where this I is, this very I that controls one’s life, that controls us life after life after life until we understand it as ego.
He also talks in great length about being precious, being proud of the beautiful person that you are. To respect your self by behaving like a Buddha. By always feeling the presence of Buddha on your shoulder to make sure every action is filled with loving-kindness toward all beings.
People want respect but often do not respect themselves. Life is precious and Tulkus, great teachers, and each of us are precious. That day where you realize how precious you are is the very first day of your life.
Every bad thought, bad influence, bad decision should be recognized at he beginning so it does not go any further, and does not create horrible circumstances for anyone and create any more bad karma… You are all precious beings. Make a difference with your life now.

“Do a practice of compassion, love and kindness in your house;
Then, you will teach your family; your family will teach your friends;
Your friends will teach your neighbors; your neighbors will teach the whole state, and that way it can spread all over the world and there can be peace.”
