Examine this "I"
Kyabjé Penor Rinpoche
Buddhist Wisdom
1995
  • His Holiness Penor Rinpoche (1932-2009) was the 11th throne holder of the Palyul Lineage of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism. Penor Rinpoche was one of the last great Buddhist masters to have completed his training entirely in Tibet, and he was respected throughout the Buddhist community as an outstanding scholar and highly accomplished master.

    He gave this teaching in London, 8 July 1995.

    “The reason why we are actually roaming in this existence of samsara for many lifetimes is because of what is called dakdzin (bdag ‘dzin), which is holding to the false notion of self. That's why when we practice, it’s very important for us to examine where this so called "I" or this ego actually comes from.”
