Parting from the Four Attachments

On the 15th of May, Pewar Rinpoche taught the three year retreatants at Lerab Ling. He shared memories of his master, Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö, and gave an essential teaching on the famous Sakyapa text, 'The Instruction on Parting from the Four Attachments':

“If you are attached to this life, you are not a true spiritual practitioner,
If you are attached to samsara, you have no renunciation,
If you are attached to your own self-interest, you have no bodhicitta,
If there is grasping, you do not have the View.”

Khandro Tsering Chödron, the spiritual wife of Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö, who is in residence at Lerab Ling for the moment, can be seen on the right.
