Print Friendly

A talk given at the Ripa Center in Moscow, Russia. The teachings are in English with Russian translation.

  • In Buddhism we are trying to love others in a healthy way, not a needy way
  • We are the ones who suffer from holding a grudge, not our enemies
  • We learn a lot about ourselves from difficulties and difficult relationships
  • The self-centered attitude is one of the biggest obstacles we have on the path
  • Decreasing the self-centered attitude doesn’t mean we stop caring about ourselves
