In this course we will use teachings of Lama Yeshe, the founder with Lama Zopa Rinpoche of FPMT, which were given as a five-day meditation retreat and have been published in the book, Ego, Attachment, and Liberation. We will explore Lama’s instructions for working skillfully to subdue the uncontrolled states of mind such as attachment, anger and low self-esteem that cause us to suffer and motivate harmful actions. We will come to see how a constricted sense of ego-identity is at the root of our problems and learn how to give our ego the “wisdom-eye” and connect with our innate potential for joy and wellbeing.
