This month, I would like to share with you a brief account of Pema Lingpa’s (1450-1521) visionary journey to Zangdok Palri. Pema Lingpa was an important Bhutanese treasure revealer within the Nyingma tradition and the reincarnation of Künkhyen Longchen Rabjam (Longchenpa).

When we hear that our innate nature is Buddha -nature, are we confident that it is so? How do we develop dignity–a sense of certainty in our innate nature?
Meditation · Vajrayana
Buddha-nature refers to the ground, the basic nature that we all share.  It is our “starting point”, so to speak. We refer to the ground of all sentient beings, the ground of the Buddha, the ground of all dharmas, and all phenomena. What is the common ground of all of this? We share the common ground of emptiness.
Guru Rinpoche Day Teachings
Hoping you all are happy and healthy. Here’s a short message on this Guru Rinpoche Day: When you know there’s nothing more important than the mind, then you can turn your mind towards the Dharma at that moment.

Genuine compassion, Phakchok Rinpoche explains, is compassion free of any aggression. Moreover, that compassion does not have grasping. This compassion is much more gentle. Ultimate or genuine compassion does not have the thought, “I need to save real sentient beings.”

Regardless on who we are, or what our plans and goals are, life goes on. Phakchok Rinpoche, in this audio clip, suggests that we remind ourselves of this fact.

Perception has power and it can be surprisingly strong. Normally, perception and habits work together to create a mistaken view of our world.Perception always comes from first not knowing. Perception is the mind’s expression or its reflection. It does not exist out there somewhere in the world.

You should learn to meditate”.  We hear this frequently.  How do we learn to meditate? What does it really mean?  What are we supposed to be doing when we meditate?  Maybe we have even tried to meditate before, but we got frustrated.  Can meditation be simple?
Meditation · Vajrayana
When we turn our minds inward and investigate the core nature of our mind, what do we find? In this final audio clip, Rinpoche reminds us that this very mind nature is enlightenment. Mind nature remains full of all qualities and untouched by negativity. Noone creates mind nature. And mind nature is always accessible!
Meditation · Vajrayana
Phakchok Rinpoche assures us that enlightenment is possible. Actually, there is a thin line dividing buddhas and sentient beings. So, the difference between buddha and sentient beings is that a buddha sees the true nature of the mind and understands that the mind is not truly established. However, sentient beings do not see–but it is possible!
