🙏 Learning to Let Go 🙏
Recognizing self-grasping in order to let go
These days, we often talk about the importance of < letting go >. However, if we don’t know how to identify properly what exercises a hold over us, we can’t know how we should let go. It would be like trying to catch a robber if we didn’t know what he looked like or if we wanted to hit a target with an arrow without being able to see it.

It’s self-grasping that must be recognized; it is usually expressed by the words < me > and < my >. In more common terms we could also call it < the ego >. Freeing ourselves from this attachment to our ego is what we can call < letting go >.
Thus, it’s towards this inner troublemaker, which is the ego or the self-grasping attitude, that we must release our hold on. Letting go doesn’t, therefore, signify having to abandon what is external: friends, work, family, relationships, material possessions,
This feeling of < me >, that we call the self, is something that we consider essential and that emanates deep from within our heart. We don’t consider < others > in the same way. This stems from our very strong self-grasping attitude. Yet, we are equal to others in our wish to avoid suffering and to be happy. If we continually meditate on this, the problems that presently assail us one after another will cease to arise.

< Whatever your religious origins, an interest in Buddhism can be truly useful because it offers an important insight on the fundamental problems of human existence. Buddhism is based on the principles of non-violence, universal compassion and world peace, with a concern for global responsibility aimed at kindness, sympathy and harmony among all humans. In the end, it aims to maintain the fragile balance of our planet and develop hope of a better life. It's a matter of survival. >
This approach makes way for an attitude of open-mindedness, mutual understanding and dialogue beyond any differences.
University studies in Tibetan Buddhist philosophy require many years. They include multiple branches in a variety of specialized fields of study.
Lama Samten studied at the Ganden monastic University. Located, in South India, it is a large university, also known as the "Ganden University of Philosophy and Buddhist Psychology".

Tibetan Buddhist Philosophy
Our present world was born Buddhism about 2550 years ago. Indeed, it was at this moment that Shakyamuni Buddha, who had come to teach in the sacred land of India, appeared. In his immense goodness, he shared with the beings, in all impartiality, the teachings of the three baskets (vinaya, sutra and abhidharma). These instructions respectively allow the practice of the three higher practices of ethics, concentration and wisdom. By his many teachings, the Buddha was able to adapt to the needs, motivations and capacities of each of his disciples.
These teachings were passed on to Maitreya and Manjoushri, respectively to Asanga and Nagarjuna, who passed them on to the two learned lamas, Serlingpa (Suvarnadvipi-Dharmakirti of the Golden Islands) and Rikpékouyouk (Vidyakokila the Elder). These two lineages of teaching, named respectively of the vast practice and the deep sight, were afterwards united in the person of the Indian master Atisha Dipamkara. The latter transmitted them to Tibet splendidly during the last 17 years of his life, knowing how to adapt them to the Tibetan people in order to facilitate their understanding. He transmitted them to his main spiritual son Dromtonpa. These teachings were then kept intact by an unbroken lineage of masters such as the Dalai Lama to the pioneer Lama Tsongkhapa, founder of an excellent tradition presenting the instructions on mental calmness and penetrating vision still very much alive in our time.
It is usually said that all the Buddha's teachings are aimed at attaining enlightenment through the practice of two kinds of meditations: concentration meditation and analytical meditation. The first is aimed at achieving mental calm (samatha), while providing
Calm abiding is the state of mind which pacifies itself by remaining concentrated in a point internally. After having obtained it, it is possible to give birth to penetrating vision : a wisdom discerning each of the phenomena, combined with the bliss of the meditative flexibility induced by the power of analysis.
Calm abiding is therefore the temporary cessation of the delusions of the mind. By calming the mind, it becomes clear. This allows a deep analysis, by penetrating vision, which can definitively eliminate the very root of these disturbances.
