Transcripts of Domo Geshe Rinpoche Teachings
Most people going to listen to a talk have a high level of enthusiasm for the topic to be discussed. Particularly, listening to a Dharma teaching can put one squarely in the present moment … so much so that upon leaving the teaching one forgets what was said! Classic Buddhist wisdom likens three ways people listen to a teaching to the three defects of a pot: the overturned pot, the leaky pot, and the poisonous pot.
The overturned pot is an analogy for one who is distracted and cannot hear the words being spoken. The leaky pot is an analogy for one who hears the words but retains very little of the meanings. The poisonous pot is an analogy for one who listens to the teaching with a mind overcome with dysfunctional thinking.
Most times we are the leaky pot!
