    Thank you again Rinpoche for your very clear teachings.
    I have one question:
    I have understood that if we practice meditation or preliminary practices to develop Bodhicitta it was all right and if we don’t need to practice to develop Bodhicitta it was all right too.
    But isn’t formal Dharma practice a good way to change our mind?
    If we considere view, meditation and action, aren’t the two formers good pillars on witch build up correct actions?

    Thank you Rinpoche,
    Have just fixed my internet signal so I can watch the videos and it is a blessing to be able to sit in my own home and see you teaching at such regular intervals. Thanks to everyone who has put the work in to set this up and made this possible.
