Enlightened Mind - Cultivating Compassion and Discernment


Enlightened Mind, be it in intention or application, involves two aspects: compassion, which takes beings for its object, and knowledge, which takes the mind for its object. Enlightened mind—bodhicitta in Sanskrit—is the will to attain enlightenment in order to actualize the ability to accomplish the benefit of beings. Such training, which begins by becoming aware of our situation, can only be progressive. It relies on cultivating the qualities of mind that continuously lead us toward greater openness and discernment and that reveal our own beneficial capabilities. These include love, compassion, joy, and equanimity; these qualities are known as the four incommensurables. During his teachings, Trinlay Rinpoche often explores this essential theme of the Buddhist path. He continues his exploration by reviewing key ideas in order to deepen our understanding.

Trinlay Rinpoché was recognized as a tulku, or manifestation of a Buddhist master by the 16th Karmapa (1923-1981). He is among the rare tulkus born in the West and his dual culture makes him an exceptional teacher.


In general, when we physically attend this type of teaching, we take part in course fees that cover the expenses the center incurs to make Dharma transmission possible. In light of the current circumstances and the transmission via Youtube intended for the greatest number of people possible, these teachings will be open-access and free of charge. Of course, it is still possible to support Dhagpo’s KDC Congregation—whose activity has been greatly reduced since mid-March—by making a (non tax-deductible) donation via Paypal or bank transfer (see the information below for details.
