The Five Skandhas

Last Friday's dharma study was an intensive on the Five Skandhas, which are a portrait of the ego. We started with two YouTube videos by a western Nyingma teacher, Julian Feijoo, which were quite insightful:

Then we worked our way through the Skandhas, using as a resource book the wonderful book by Mipham Rinpoche, Gateway to Knowledge, Volume 1. His discussion of the 51 mental states brought many "ahas" and "ohhhhs" from the group. The book may be ordered by clicking the link below:

I've also added a Recommendations section to the website where all our resources may be found. If you use the links provided, a portion of the sale will be returned to Luminous Mind.

See you Friday night for more video by the Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche!
