  3 Verses for Training the Mind

Self Realization Posted by <Omenraine> on Tuesday January 08, @01:32PM
from the om-mani-padme-hmmm dept.

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet explains the first three of "Eight Verses for Training the Mind".

A very simple (???), boyish, and humble monk explains away the nature of existence. (And makes mention of some “mystical practice in which a consciousness or soul assumes the body of a newly dead person”.)

An Excerpt:

"To counter one's arrogance or pride, you need to reflect upon shortcomings in you that can give rise to a sense of humility. For example, you can think about all the things in the world about which you are completely ignorant. Take the sign language interpreter here in front of me. When I look at her and see the complex gestures with which she performs the translation, I haven't a clue what is going on, and to see that is quite a humbling experience. From my own personal experience, whenever I have a little tingling sense of pride, I think of computers. It really calms me down!"
