Tsewa, or “warm heart,” blossoms as kindness, compassion, generosity, and tolerance—essential qualities that connect us to one another and benefit all, says Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche. Extending themes of Rinpoche’s book, The Intelligent Heart:A Guide to the Compassionate Life, these three teachings provide the essential view and practical tips to cultivate an openness of heart that transforms lives.
Talk 1 was sponsored by the Boulder Bookstore and held at 1st Congregational Church, Boulder, Colorado, in celebration of the publication of Kongtrul Rinpoche’s book, The Intelligent Heart. This talk introduces the concept of tsewa. Joseph Waxman, who edited the book, reads briefly from the text following the main talk. 29:45 minutes
Talk 2 was given at Lerab Ling in Roqueredonde, France, during a weekend teaching on The Intelligent Heart. In it, Kongtrul Rinpoche further illuminates how tsewa breaks the cycle of suffering and promotes connection, healing, and well-being. 1:08:56 minutes
Talk 3 is a guided meditation on tsewa and was recorded privately in Bodh Gaya, India. 27:00 minutes
