Even the most mundane activities of daily life provide us the opportunity to practice Dharma, Rinpoche says. While we are working, being busy, or even arguing with someone, part of the mind can recognize that what appears to be real is actually a total hallucination. Truly existent I and other people are not there but appear to be real due to our ignorance. To prevent this, we must not cling to things which appear true, we must remember that what appears real is not—like a mirage. Remembering this allows us to practice mindfulness of emptiness in all situations so we do not experience oceans of suffering in each realm without end. The teaching for this episode was recorded on December 12, 2018, at Kopan Monastery, Nepal.
