Generosity: Transcending the Boundaries of Self
Three Talks

Talk 1:  “Self” defined as the perception of one’s separateness from their environment and others – a mistaken awareness arising out of fear due to ignorance; the transcendence of ignorance and of territoriality and lack of generosity is the path to enlightenment.

Talk 2: Transcending fixation on self is the practice of generosity; fruition is complete transcendence of reference to self; three types of confidence arise from generosity: 1. Faith in the truth that suffering arising out of ignorance. 2. Conviction in the real possibility of enlightenment. 3. Confidence in the three jewels as the vehicle to achieve enlightenment.

Talk 3: Embracing the path of the bodhisattva, without expectation of reward; breaking down territory of self and boundary between self and others is generosity; three traditional ways of giving without thought of oneself: a. Giving material comfort or assistance. b. Giving fearlessness or security. c. Giving the teachings of buddhadharma.

Effort and Freedom
Three Talks

Talk 1: How to practice meditation without struggle;how to be, without self consciousness; freedom as the natural state of our being is the ground of meditation practice; memories of past events and expectations of future one's do not have to entrap our state of mind.

Talk 2: Effort is based on freedom to begin with; not a mechanistic or forced action, effort proceeds from the absence of conceptual notions about how to act; recognizing modes of laziness with respect to meditation practice and applying the antidotes reconnects us with the basic state of freedom.

Talk 3: Through meditation practice (effort) we first liberate ourselves from confused mind; this is the lesser enlightenment or realization of our Buddha nature; greater or complete enlightenment is realizing bodhicitta, the view of seeing others' potential as Buddha and the practice of compassion through the six paramitas.
