Phakchok Rinpoche said of Erik Pema Kunsang, "Erik shows rare signs of having taken the teachings to heart". Erik Pema Kunsang is one of the greatest translators of our time. A personal long term student of Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche and Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, Erik was requested to teach the Dharma by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche just a few years ago. Erik´s teachings here in 2014 were sublime; don´t miss out on this rare opportunity.

From ´Indisputable Truth´: Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche
Understand that, briefly stated,
Bodhichitta has two aspects,
The mind aspiring to awaken
And Bodhichitta that´s enacted
Just as one understands the difference
Between wishing to go and setting out upon the journey,
The wise should understand these two,
Recognising the difference and their order.
Bodhicitta in aspiration brings about great results,
Even as we continue to circle about in samsara:
Yet it does not bring about a ceaseless stream of merit,
For that will come solely from active Bodhichitta.
From the moment we genuinely take up
This irreversible attitude-
The mind that aspires to liberate entirely
The infinite realm of beings,
From then on, even while asleep,
Or during moments of inattention,
A plentiful, unceasing force of merit
Will arise, equal to the vastness of the sky.
The Brightly Shining Sun.v15-19 Patrul Rinpoche
