The Power of the Authentic Self (Awakening Dignity)


In this teaching, Phakchok Rinpoche stresses the pure nature of our minds. If we are interested in practicing meditation, we must understand our nature is pure. But it is also important even if we have no interest in practicing. When we say our nature is pure that means we don’t have ego or clinging. The essence of our mind has no clinging. Rinpoche uses the example of clouds in the sky. The sky itself doesn’t change even though clouds are constantly changing. The Buddha only taught the path of transformation. Buddhahood is not something far away. We don’t go someplace far away. Buddhahood is within. We can be right here and be a Buddha.
