Learning to Cherish Others
Part of the Transforming Family Relationships Series
In this series, experienced Bodhichitta teachers will give us practical advice on how to apply Buddha’s teachings to everyday family life.
In this class, the fourth of the series, Olivera will help us understand how to move beyond our knee-jerk negative reactions to a place of cherishing our family members.
Where do our conflicts, problems and suffering of this world come from? It’s impossible to find a single problem, misfortune or painful experience that does not arise from self-cherishing. Buddha tells us we can learn to cherish others and when we do our problems with family members and friends will vanish. Through applying Buddhist teachings in our everyday lives, we can create an inner peace that touches others around us.
With the intention to attain
The ultimate, supreme goal
That surpasses even the wish-granting jewel,
May I constantly cherish all living beings.
~Geshe Langri Tangpa, 12th century
