Beyond Words, Beyond Expression: Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche from the Tricycle DVD

Nicole Alger"When we are using this term 'basic goodness,' we are talking about our inherent completeness."

—Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche

This quote is from our exclusive Tricycle DVD. It was taken from one of the Sakyong's talks called "A Culture of Basic Goodness," in which he speaks about the incredible power of acknowledging humanity's basic goodness, an experience that is "beyond words and beyond expression":

My experience of this process of looking at this is that it is beyond words and beyond expression. It is something that we have to be willing to feel and touch. But what is most important is that when our mind has that moment of self-reflection, if you feel like you are not worthy, it's a very momentary experience. The power of that moment is astronomical. We're living in a culture where that very issue is at the basis of our social fabric. It's the basis of our economy. It's the basis of why we go to work and get up. So right now we are at a crossroads. And what we decide at a global level about how we feel as humanity will have incredible implications.

These DVDs, accompanying pieces to our December retreat Being Brave: Transforming Our World, are only available through the month of December. They're the perfect thing to counteract a post-holiday season spiritual hangover, but they'll only be available for another two weeks.

The four-DVD set includes over eight hours worth of talks and guided meditations. The exclusive Tricycle Member price is only $35 with free shipping in the US and Canada. Buy the DVD here.
