Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche talks about the power of emotions.

On April 30, OmTimes Magazine posted an interview with Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, renowned Buddhist teacher and author of “Emotional Rescue: How to Work with Your Emotions to Transform Hurt and Confusion into Energy that Empowers You.” 

The interviewer asked Dzogchen Ponlop, “What is it about our emotions that makes them workable? They seem to be at the very center of our suffering. How can the energy of emotions empower you?

Rinpoche responded with a concise and clear explanation of emotions. He began by saying, “At heart, your emotional energies are a limitless source of creative power and intelligence that’s “on” all the time—like the electrical current we put to so many uses.” Enjoy the complete interview here.
