Is this sound SparkAdvice -- or what! Rinpoche says, "When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself. Perception is not reality. What appear to be faults in others may actually be reflections of our own emotional afflictions. I don't have an attitude problem; you have a perception problem. Remember the way people treat us is their karma. The way we react is our own."
Judging ourselves and others in this SparkJourney to better health and wellness is one of the primary ways we sabotage our efforts! Along with losing body weight, I'm striving to lose mental baggage as well on this journey.
HH Trulshik was the "Teacher to the Stars" -- the most exalted teachers in this Tibetan Buddhist tradition -- e.g., HH the 14th Dalai Lama, Dudjom Rinpoche, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Sogyal Rinpoche!!! Now I want to see the documentary about him narrated by Richard Gere now, titled Destroyer of Illusion!
Trulshik Rinpoche Ngawang Chokyi Lodro was born January 1, 1923 in Yardrok Taklung, Central Tibet and died September 2, 2011. He founded the monastery of Thubten Choling in Nepal. In 2010 he became the official head of the Nyingma school. Rinpoche lived in Solukhumbu, Nepal.
