Tulku Tsori Rinpoche teaches his students in Miami Florida about compassion. How to not forget to have compassion as the ultimate goal in any career.
If you are a lawyer, police officer or doctor, you start that journey wanting to help others, but often end up forgetting along the way and replacing it with a desire for profit, a bigger house, a new car, the next customer, and next, and next. We should not do that. Kindness, patience, generosity, compassion, caring for others should be the ultimate goal for everything we do.
He speaks about the Tibetan culture and how Tibetan doctors heal patients with their heart open, taking a feeble hand in their hand, ready to fight that battle together. 90% of the diseases originate in the mind, so we must heal the mind, be gentle and loving.
Tulku also speaks about practice and having respect for the teachings. This generation asks for the highest teachings, emptiness, Dzogchen, they would like to become realized overnight, but the practice is a long journey in perseverance, learning, and opening of the heart through equanimity, loving-kindness and compassion.
He speaks about the true definition of love, not – I love you because you have nice hair, nice eyes, or a nice car – but because I love you unconditionally, and I want you to be happy. That love does not turn into fighting and quarreling. That is the true definition of “I love you”
He speaks about how to value your life from the moment you wake up in the morning, and to not waste any time being depressed and letting life pass you by. To take advantage of every moment to make a difference in the world by being kind and making others happy, being a Buddhist and practicing Dharma with every breath you take…
Lama Tulku Tsori Rinpoche is the founder of YTDR and Act4Tibet. He is reaching out to the very destitute Tibetan community in Mainpat, one of the poorest Tibetan Refugee Camps in India, where he is establishing a monastery, nunnery hospital, school and orphanage.
Tsori Rinpoche has devoted his life to champion humanitarian efforts. He travels throughout the world teaching the Buddha Dharma (Path of Awakening), and speaking on the greater good of empowering humanity and revitalizing society.
He was born in Nepal in 1974 and recognized as the incarnation of Yogi Tsori Rinpoche of Chamdho, Tibet. At the age of seven, he entered the Namdroling Monastery in Bylakuppe, India, the seat of His Holiness Pema Norbu (Penor) Rinpoche, Supreme head of the Nyingma School. At Namdroling, Rinpoche completed his monastic studies under his root Guru, H.E. Khenpo Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche. His fields of studies included years of advanced training in Buddhist philosophy, Tibetan medicine, and Tibetan art.
“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.”
~ Lama Tulku Tsori Rinpoche
