Beautiful Monsters

« Back to Glossary Index

Rinpoche calls raw feelings, emotions, and neuroses “beautiful monsters” to reflect their complex nature. Instead of habitually fearing, resenting, rejecting, or identifying with our beautiful monsters, we learn how to handshake them, to allow them to be. Handshaking is a practice that requires guts and kindness.

Synonyms:
avocados, bananas, sausages
