Rinpoche kindly accepted an invite from Dharma Mati (Rigpa Berlin) to give a teaching (via Zoom) on ‘Impermanence’ to students on their ‘Parting and new beginnings – How we can meet impermanence with ease’ retreat.
In this one hour teaching for Rigpa Berlin, Ringu Tulku Rinpoche gives an overview of the various ways we can think about impermanence. At the outer level, we can observe impermanence in our daily lives and understand its existence intellectually. With examples from the Buddha’s life and teachings, Rinpoche illustrates how we can become kinder, more compassionate individuals by living in accordance with the reality of impermanence. Rinpoche then continues to explain how a deep understanding of impermanence will lead to an understanding of interdependence, and ultimately emptiness.
