When a magician does magic the audience believes what they see to be true while the magician, even if he also sees the illusion, knows it to be a hallucination and does not believe in the appearance. In this video Lama Zopa Rinpoche teaches how to see all appearances like a magician's illusion. By seeing all causative phenomena in this way we come to see how our own minds illusion us and how all that appears as truly existent is just like the magician's illusion. In this way we can cut the root of samsara. Using a very relevant example Rinpoche explains how to do this meditation while shopping and how walking through the kitchen, make-up and different departments of a store can become a powerful antidote to samsara and a cause for liberation.
