Roger Kunsang, Rinpoche’s assistant and CEO of FPMT, Rinpoche shared that Rinpoche gave animated and dynamic teachings on emptiness that were “so clear on the subtle aspects.” Rinpoche also enthusiastically taught on Dharma practice, the meaning of refuge and the importance of Dharma.
According to Ven. Roger, Rinpoche said: ”Dharma protects you from suffering. Happiness and suffering come from the mind … so protect your mind … keep your mind content … cultivate happiness from within!”
Ven. Roger also shared that Rinpoche said: “Milarepa had nothing and yet was always blissful! Many people have everything materially and are still unhappy. … True lasting happiness comes from within. … Satisfaction and contentment are mental states. … These inner qualities don’t depend on outside things.”
