In this exclusive online video teaching filmed at the Garrison Institute in upstate New York, Tibetan Buddhist teacher Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche speaks with Tricycle on an array of topics concerning Buddhism and modernity. Rinpoche explains how to rid ourselves of unhealthy habits (from alcoholism to poor diet) and how to live amongst unhealthy surroundings, as well as argues that technology can be helpful “if we have a good heart.” “Buddhism is the science of the mind and the art of life,” he says in the teaching. “The bottom line is: how can we be more kind to each other?”
