Rinpoche gives a talk on Meditation at Bodhicharya Kent in Rochester.
“Life is only 10% how things are, and 90% how we react to it. It was not a Buddhist who said this, actually it was a scientist. Meditation is very much around that understanding. We should, of course, try to make life as good around us as we can, but the life is such that we can never have solved all our problems. When we solve one, another comes, and when we solve two, sometimes three problems come. The more strongly we are involved in solving them, the more we are overwhelmed by them.
Now, is there another way to deal with them? That’s where the practice of meditation and the practice of the Dharma becomes relevant and important.”
