As many of you know, Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche has been spending time this past week at his retreat place. However, yesterday, on March 21st, Rinpoche came down to the monastery to meet with some of his monks. He also gave a teaching to a small group of RYI students. Even with this small group we took precautions: the group sat at a distance from Rinpoche, temperatures were checked, and everyone washed their hands well and was given a mask to wear before coming into Rinpoche’s visiting room.
Rinpoche planned to give a brief talk to the students, but we were fortunate to receive an extensive, beautiful, and profound dharma teaching alongside some points of advice for dealing with the current Covid-19 pandemic.
Rinpoche felt that these are unique times, and that the dharma is the only true medicine for our suffering, he kindly allowed this teaching to be shared with everyone. Please enjoy!
