A short teaching by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche from the Creating Enlightened Society conference in Northern California the weekend of May 10th-12th.
"...if the whole society is just trying to make it through, what kind of society is that? What are we creating? And I think the notion here is that we have to address the human heart and mind."
"And now it's clear that the notion of meditation and how we work with our mind and heart is essential for our own personal happiness, but also as a human being in terms of the ability to relate to their own emotions and thoughts that that is not just a soft issue, but that is integral to the vitality of our own being and all society itself."
