In this video, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche shares his thoughts on the coronavirus outbreak around the world and offers an inspiring message to all those learning to live with awareness, compassion, and wisdom.

"Everybody has a lot of fear, panic, and anxiety, but the most important thing is our mindset and how we think about this. Especially from a meditator's point of view, whatever we are facing in our lives — if we try to take it as a learning opportunity and a way to grow, and we try to transform those fears and anxiety into support for our meditation, or our practice — that is really a great opportunity.

Normally, our lives are like the waves of the ocean. There are a lot of ups and downs. Not only in our lives but in society and the world, there are always ups and downs. From these ups and downs, we can learn a lot. We can grow a lot. We can gain a lot of insight from these ups and downs. The main important thing is to not give up. What we say is that we need to “let go.” Letting go is, of course, now that we are having this problem, that we have to accept the situation. This is true. This is the reality right now. This virus is breaking out around the world, and many people are having a lot of problems and difficulties. But sometimes, if we give up, we cannot learn. We cannot grow, we cannot find a solution, and we do not know what to do. So, the most important thing is to not give up. We all have great potential. Everybody has wisdom, love and compassion, awareness, and skills. All these are within all of us. Try your best to use your knowledge, wisdom, skills, love, and compassion".
