Aro03: Part 3 - Question and Answer Series 1

This podcast opens with a question concerning Ngak’chang Rinpoche’s use of language within teachings, specifically Rinpoche’s preference to avoid using the term ‘ego’ when referring to the self. Next the discussion moves onto the pitfall of approaching the Buddhist teachings with the hope of attaining a spiritualised version of oneself, and the use of the expression ‘artificial buddhist personality’ by Ngak’chang Rinpoche. Tröma Rig’tsal’s next question refers to the need for a practitioner to accept themselves as they are as the basis for embarking upon a spiritual path. Following that Rinpoche is asked about the issue of unasked for advice being given within sanghas. (38:22) ( )
