Don’t be disenchanted

Dear H.E. Tsem Rinpoche,

I am writing to thank you for the wonderful gift of this website and your video teachings. I work as an inner city High School teacher and found particular relevance and inspiration in your talk Don’t De Disenchanted. What an insightful challenge to remember not to individualise my inner response to students’ (or staff) behavior.

I especially appreciate your style of teaching and how you make a statement and then ask “why?”. The original statement itself makes sense but your deeper explanations and use of humor are like shooting an arrow into the heart.

Thank you also for sharing your biography. Your love for your Guru(s) is palpable. Your compassion to choose this life has blessed us with a depth of insight that only someone who has lived through such conditions could understand. So many young people have to live such painful lives, and no psychology or Prozac is capable of giving them the tools of 100% forgiveness you exhibit. How wonderful this world would be if everyone could have that healing experience of unconditional love which comes from a true Guru. Your biography is a loving tribute to your Guru and your own heart. Thank you.

Warm regards,
