Mingyur Rinpoche - Awareness, Compassion, and Wisdom

Mingyur Rinpoche - Awareness, Compassion, and Wisdom

In this episode, Wendy speaks with Tibetan Buddhist teacher Mingyur Rinpoche about how contemplative practice can lead us to awareness, compassion, and wisdom. Their conversation covers many topics, including:

  • his involvement in early contemplative research;

translating concepts between Buddhism and science;

what Buddhists mean by "emptiness";

non-conceptual meditation, open presence and foundational awareness;

the three kinds of self, and which one is like shaving foam;

the problem of othering;

making friends with panic and difficult emotions;

the experience of a "wandering" retreat;

and building trust through contemplative practice.
