A quick talk on material dependency

September 9, 2010

Found this video this morning. It’s short but to the point. Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche talks about how our minds are never satisfied with just this, we need to get this other thing to add to this, to make it better.

He uses a great reference to those of us with iPhones, which I unfortunately do not have (or fortunately, if it weren’t for the phone my job gives me I don’t even have a cell phone) but he does and laughs about it. Even an enlightened being has attachments and grasps at material items, but being aware of it is key to conquering it.
