The Dream- Like Nature of Reality - Freedom of Emptiness
The Dream- Like Nature of Reality - Tuesday 21st September 2021 with Gen Mila
Topic : Freedom of Emptiness
In the book Universal Compassion, the author, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso gives inspiration and solutions for our daily life difficulties.
This month we are exploring Buddhas profound wisdom teachings on the true nature of reality.
"Whatever appears to our mind naturally appears to be truly existent and we instinctively assent to this appearance, but in reality everything is totally empty of true existence. Like a mirage that appears to be water but is not in fact water, things appear in a deceptive way. Not understanding their real nature we are fooled by appearances, and grasp at books and tables, bodies and worlds as truly existent. The result of grasping at phenomena in this way is that we develop self-cherishing, attachment, hatred, jealousy and other delusions, our mind becomes agitated and unbalanced, and our peace of mind is destroyed"
In person and online.
