Dharma Talk

Dharma Teacher Fred Eppsteiner

What is the 'Single Purpose' of All Dharma Teachings?

June 30, 2019 

In this series of talks, Dharma teacher Fred Eppsteiner comments on a number of  the slogans offered  in “The Seven Points of Mind Training,” a venerated text well known for its' pithy sayings that help us apply the full breadth of the Buddha’s Mahayana teachings to daily life.   These slogans, or mind trainings, focus on how the Unconditioned Awakened Mind can beneficially manifest in the life of ordinary beings in order to give rise to lovingkindness, compassion, and understanding in all the activities of our lives. The transformation of seemingly adverse situations into the path of awakening is a unique focus of these mind trainings.  Fred helps us understand how the teachings and practices presented in this text can be applied in our lives and how we can use whatever is occurring in our lives to fuel our transformation.  In this particular talk, Fred discusses the practice of Tonglen as it is presented in this text, and the slogan, "All Dharmas have a single purpose."
