The first teaching, "The Three Principal Aspects of the Path," was given in France in 1982. The second teaching, an "Introduction to Tantra," also in two parts, was given at Grizzly Lodge, California, in 1980. It comprises the first two lectures of a commentary on the Chenrezig yoga.

"Meditation is not on the level of the object but on that of the subject - you are the business of your meditation.

"Bodhicitta is very practical, I tell you. It’s like medicine. The self-cherishing thought is like a nail or a sword in your heart; it always feels uncomfortable. With bodhicitta, from the moment you begin to open, you feel incredibly peaceful and you get tremendous pleasure and inexhaustible energy. Forget about enlightenment - as soon as you begin to open yourself to others, you gain tremendous pleasure and satisfaction. Working for others is very interesting; it’s an infinite activity. Your life becomes continuously rich and interesting.

"Historically, Shakyamuni Buddha taught the four noble truths. To whose culture do the four noble truths belong? The essence of religion has nothing to do with any one particular country's culture. Compassion, love, reality - to whose culture do they belong? The people of any country, any nation, can implement the three principal aspects of the path, the four noble truths or the eightfold path. There's no contradiction at all."

?我的教法是把「我執」曝露出來,大家才能一覽無遺,看個清楚,

所以我才會想辦法去引發你的我執,這種教學技巧很不客氣的。

我們過去生生世世都客客氣氣的,總是刻意避免衝擊,從來不曾直接面對問題。

我不玩這一套,我喜歡直接面對問題,我也要大家跟著做。

——耶喜喇嘛


關於我執與貪著,耶喜喇嘛有這樣的比喻:如果有人問雞籠裡的雞快不快樂?牠不會回答,但是雞在熟悉的環境裡,就是本能地覺得快樂。要是領域受到侵入,雞就會生氣地要驅逐入侵者。如果我們的行為跟雞一樣,就比雞好不到哪去。然而,我們的空間如果受到侵犯,就跟雞一樣生氣,那到底跟雞有什麼差別?


◎我執讓我們陷入種種因緣,無從體會安定、自由、歡喜;貪著則讓所做的每一件事都淪為表面工夫,所貪著的外境越多、內心越散亂。


本書將教我們試著轉化滿腦子都是「我、我、我」的貪著,從而全心全意謀求他人的安樂,這樣的利他心非常珍貴難得。耶喜喇嘛說,人生真正的美不是外在,不是我執在別人身上投射出的樣子,而是他們的內在潛力,也會因而尊重其他有情、伸出援手,不會再自我中心,耗費時間增長我執和貪著。


我執遇到外境時會先產生錯謬的投射,緊接著引發貪著,心念會完完全全地縈繞著對境或受到繫縛,弄得我們心神不寧、無法清靜。一般人通常都任由這兩種心態擺佈,從來不曾觀察自心,情緒一來就失控!


◎耶喜喇嘛的說法直指核心,是西方人、嬉皮士實修佛法的偉大精神導師


1960年代,大批嬉皮士湧入印度與尼泊爾等地,企圖尋求新型態的心靈與生活方式。同一時期,耶喜喇嘛與其心子圖敦.梭巴仁波切正在尼泊爾加德滿都地區的柯槃寺教授西方人佛法,對藏傳佛教向西方傳法的風潮頗有助效。本書即是耶喜喇嘛1975年巡迴世界各地演講時,在澳洲墨爾本附近主持五日禪修營的內容。


耶喜喇嘛生前致力於把佛教的神秘面紗除去,喜歡用佛教及佛法接受西方科學的挑戰。在1984年因病離世前,他刻意選擇在最先進的美國加州醫院內圓寂,讓西方記者見證他的死亡。1985年,他的轉世天津宇色仁波切出生,其父母為西班牙人,和西方世界的緣分甚深。
