BA6_67-75 Having Patience When Our Loved Ones Are Harmed. Part 2.

Bodhicharya_channel

With this video (BA6_67-75) Ringu Tulku explains how the negative actions are done out of ignorance. It’s up to us to end this spiral, which otherwise could go on for generations.

If I react with patience and loving kindness instead of hatred, then, even if that requires some sacrifice now, it will prevent more problems in the long run, and contribute to happiness of everybody. At least, I have started a more positive way of life for myself. If I can do this, I should rejoice. That’s the true dharma practice. This is Rinpoche’s commentary on stanzas 67 to 75 of the Sixth Chapter of the Bodhicharyavatara.

BA6_64-66 Having Patience When Our Loved Ones Are Harmed

Bodhicharya_channel

One of the most difficult times to have patience is when our religion, our teachers, or our loved ones are harmed. Even then, however, there is no reason to be angry. We should of course do whatever we can to prevent and stop that, but we should remain patient. This is Rinpoche’s commentary on stanzas 64 to 66 of the Sixth Chapter of the Bodhicharyavatara.  (BA6_64-66)

BA6Q3 Questions and Answers 3 (Chapter 6)

Bodhicharya_channel

With video BA6Q3 Ringu Tulku kindly answers some more questions submitted concerning the first few verses of the Sixth Chapter of the Bodhicharyavatara and some earlier stanzas as well.

Regarding the question in this video concerning The Sutra of the Essence of the Sky, we found the following information which might offer some help. In Sanskrit it is called Akashagarbha Sutra and in Tibetan nam mkha’i snyingpo’i mdo. The Tibetan text can be seen here in this link. We could not find an English translation, but there seems to be a book in German. The two texts written both by Shantideva and by Nagarjuna are Digest of All Disciplines (Sanskrit: Shiksasamuccaya), and Digest of All Sutras (Sanskrit: Sutrasamuccaya).  The first one has been translated to English in 1922 by Cecil Bendall and W.H.D. Rouse and can be read online  through this link.
