“Nineteen years ago, the first time I visited this country, I gave a lot of teachings on clarity,” says Tsoknyi Rinpoche.
“In the Far East, we miss clarity. So I thought in this country, [people] also missed clarity. So I taught for three or four years, constantly on clarity. Seems like it didn’t work that well. [laughter]
So I further investigated that. So I realized – sorry to say that – you have an emotional imbalance. Very highly sophisticated cognitive clarity. But deep down, screwed up [laughter] around emotion. And you miss love.
So I thought, ‘Oh, how do I approach this?’ It took a few years to develop some kind of new curriculum, strategies. So here, when I mean love, it means you’re getting a lot of love from conditions.”
Tsoknyi Rinpoche’s new book OPEN HEART, OPEN MIND: Awakening the Power of Essence Love is now available wherever books are sold.
