The Intensity of the Images

TELEVISOR ANTIGUO

When we watch a television program, we have no trouble identifying places, persons, animals, mountains, and so on. Through becoming involved with the program, we identify with what we are seeing and begin to feel an emotional response. Actually, what we are looking at are not places, persons, animals, or mountains, but points of light on a tube in a little box.

The confusion that is necessary to enjoy a television program is similar to bewilderment or ignorance, where the very vividness or intensity of the images of the mind’s lucidity overpowers the mind. 

—Thrangu Rinpoche
