Video – The Altruistic Heart: Training in the Four Immeasurables

10:30 am - 12:00 pm


Video – Five talks. Sundays January 12th through February 9th, 2020

Sometimes it may seem to us that our relationships with family, work colleagues, friends, and/or sangha are not workable. It may seem that our habitual pattern of negative self-judgment is inescapable. Dzoghen Ponlop Rinpoche teaches us that with love and compassion everything is workable, everything we do produces a positive result. By  cultivating gentleness and trust toward ourselves, we can train our hearts and minds to become naturally concerned with the welfare of others. The four immeasurables — loving kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity — are meditative trainings that transform our inherent qualities from dormant seeds to a loving presence. Speaking from the heart and from experience, Rinpoche’s teaching provides fresh and profound insights, opening our hearts and encouraging us to bring these teachings into our world. Rinpoche uses humor,  examples, and analogies that make the teachings memorable and accessible. These talks include a practice instruction for experiencing genuine love for self and other as well. The final talk ends with a practice session with Rinpoche.
