Buddhism and Tibetan Culture: Dalai lama’s Special Teaching in Minnesota on Tibetan New Year
This is the first part of Kunsang Dolma’s compilation of the Dalai Lama’s special teaching on Tibetan New Year’s Day in Minnesota. His Holiness gave teaching on generating the awakening mind of bodhichita ( Semkye) as his New Year’s gift to the people. In his teaching His Holiness advises devotees that merely reciting verse of taking refuge in the Triple Gem and generating the awakening mind of bodhichita are not enough. Instead they must understand the meaning of it and then practice it seriously.
