Garchen Rinpoche’s Explanation of the Refuge Card
Garchen Rinpoche’s Commentary: See Other’s Good Qualities, Not Their Faults
“Someone with a truly virtuous mind does not look at worldly faults. Seeing faults in others is your own fault, and therefore it is you who are mistaken.” From the Altar Sutra by the Sixth Patriarch Huineng.
Garchen Rinpoche on How to Save the Environment
This is H. E. Garchen Rinpoche’s call to all practitioners to practice for the benefit of Mother Earth and the Environment. He wrote this statement in 2015 and asked that it be disseminated far and wide. Reading it today, his words are indeed prophetic. He tells us that we must love one another, thus creating balance of the elements on the inner level, which will in turn be reflected in balance of the elements on the outer level, in the world around us. If we do not do this, Rinpoche says that “hatred and jealousy will increase in this world, and love will decline. This will lead to an increase of heat in the world, and in the end the world will go up in flames.”
