At KTD (New York) Rinpoche was asked to teach on the topic “Peace in the Midst of Upheaval: Mixing One’s Mind with the Dharma to Achieve Emotional Tranquility”. The teaching was also streamed on Zoom.

We can say the well-known words then we need to reflect on the nature of samsara
and impermanence. When we were escaping from Tibet, we would manage one bad thing
but there would always be another then another. This is samsara. When things were truly
desperate we thought on impermanence – even the bad will not last. Story about the two
stones – for good times or bad. Remember, things are not as solid as they appear. Story of
Irishman wanting to see HH Karmapa. To change the world, start with yourself and believe
it can be done. We can convince people of hate, why not convince the opposite? Change
what you can but worry helps nothing. Dharma is about how to fix yourself not the issue.
