    WC. 015: Transcendent Wisdom

    Welcome to The Wisdom of Compassion, a podcast presented by White Conch Dharma Center. For today’s episode we will be featuring a teaching by Domo Geshe Rinpoche, the Spiritual Director of White Conch, titled “Transcendent Wisdom.”

    In a continuation of previous commentary on Patrul Rinpoche’s seminal work, Words of My Perfect Teacher, Rinpoche discusses the natural tendency of the mind to cling to objects, thoughts, and experiences. With a lucid description of how the mind holds on to our past, Rinpoche illustrates how this grasping is preventing us from embracing our spiritual potential.

    The White Conch 2016 Spring Retreat will be focused on the meditation practice of White Tara, and in this teaching, Rinpoche explains how this meditation is a powerful technique for returning our awareness back from grasping and clinging.

    There are a lot of powerful concepts presented in this teaching and If there’s a section that really speaks to you, we’d love to hear about it. Let us know what you found helpful by writing to us on our facebook page for White Conch Dharma Center.

    WC. 014: Excerpt from Maturing Spiritual Love

    WC. 014: Excerpt from Maturing Spiritual Love

    Welcome to The Wisdom of Compassion, a podcast presented by White Conch Dharma Center. For today’s episode we will be featuring an excerpt from a teaching by Domo Geshe Rinpoche, the Spiritual Director of White Conch, titled “Maturing Spiritual Love”.

    In the section we’ll be listening to, Rinpoche is giving commentary on a traditional Buddhist prayer of refuge. The prayer as recited in the White Conch community is: In order to obtain perfect enlightenment, I vow from now on to go for refuge to the Guru and Three Precious Gems, and not abandon sentient beings. I will practice the six perfections.

    Over the years, Rinpoche has spoken in depth on various elements of this prayer: From exploring the phrase “perfect enlightenment”, to explaining the Three Precious Gems (which are the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha), and even addressing the true meaning of the word Guru and the wariness that surrounds it in the west.

    Each segment discussed by Rinpoche adds to a more comprehensive understanding of the prayer, and here we will be exploring the word abandon and its associated connotations. Enjoy!

    WC. 013: Enlightened Activism

    For this episode, we will be featuring a teaching by Domo Geshe Rinpoche titled “Enlightened Activism”.

    As political season comes into full swing in the United States, people around the country are getting involved in a variety of capacities. In this inspiring teaching, Rinpoche explores four different levels of activists: Participants, Advocates, Advocates for Change, and True Activists.

    True activists, Rinpoche says, need to be able to feel the energy of the situation and determine what can be done and what cannot be done. She then presents an amazing exercise to help us gauge our personal capabilities for the situations we might encounter.

    Rinpoche closes the teaching reminding us of the tireless efforts of the Bodhisattva heroes and we are left to admire and aspire to the ideals of the Bodhisattvas and their enlightened activism.

    For this episode, we will be featuring a teaching by Domo Geshe Rinpoche titled “Honesty as A Spiritual Practice”.

    In commentary about the classic Buddhist teachings of the Ten Virtues and the Ten Non-Virtues, Rinpoche discusses a multitude of forms of dishonesty and their remedies.
