The Sense of Self

In this video, Mingyur Rinpoche introduces the three “sense” of self: unhealthy, healthy, and luminous sense of self. Habituated to see ourselves as permanent, independent, and singular, Mingyur Rinpoche invites us to see beyond this unhealthy sense of self and open to the innate wisdom that lives within each of us.
