Transcript teaching H.H. Dalai Lama

Although the subject was the text ‘The Eight Verses’ by Langri Tangpa on ‘’bodhicitta’ (altruism, or great compassion), H.H. spent more than half of the talk - the first 11 pages - giving a description of how we can develop insight into the true nature of reality, partly on the basis of the Four Noble Truths. Only after we have that insight and develop bodhicitta can we really make strides on our path to Enlightenment (Buddhahood). In this way we practice both the paths of Wisdom and Method, and how to do that is explained clearly in this teaching.

This is a rough transcript, meant to be used privately. Please do not copy or distribute it further! Even so, we hope that it will not only remind us of a special day in September 2018, but will contribute to the removal of suffering of all sentient beings.
