In this video lama Zopa Rinpoche exhorts us to give up on samsara. Quoting past masters such as Lama Tsongkhapa, the 7th Dalai Lama, and Pabongka Dechen Nyingpo, Rinpoche explains that the real samara is not a pace but the continuity of the contaminated aggregates caused by delusion and karma. When we reach the path of meditation we will end this uncontrolled circling. Rinpoche also explains the falsity of samsaric pleasures, which in truth are no more than suffering wrongly labeled as pleasure. Such pleasure cannot increase and cannot last. Moreover we have never had a break from this suffering even once since beginingless time. A wonderful explanation of how suffering arises, how to get free of such suffering, and how OTHERS are the originator of our enlightenment.
