In this recorded course, we will explore the simple reality that, moment to moment, we all search, struggle, grasp, hope, fear and spin around, chasing our own tails. The question is: why do we do this to ourselves? What is the root of the persistent anxiety that creates this pain and confusion for us?
The Buddhist perspective is that our lives are workable, and that we have wisdom as our birthright. But in order to clarify the confusion, we need to explore the misconception we possess a separate, independent “self,” or ego. Trungpa Rinpoche’s early teachings on ego–and its many battles–offer simple and profound insight into this giant misunderstanding.
Through study, contemplation and meditation, we can start to loosen the grip of fixation, so that the underlying confusion can be clarified and transformed.
