You Are Already a Buddha

How would you feel if someone told you that you have awareness, compassion, and wisdom 24 hours a day, even when you’re asleep? Would you believe it?

In this video, Mingyur Rinpoche talks about the unique approach of Vajrayana Buddhism that helps us recognize what we already have.

To learn more about Vajrayana Buddhism, you can check out The Heart of Tantra transmission retreats and courses.

Reflection Question

  • Let’s say for a moment that Rinpoche’s message to us is true — that compassion, wisdom, and an awareness that is pure and free are already perfectly complete within us. If you were to discover this within yourself, what impact would that have in your life? Is there any part of you that already senses deep down that what he says might be true?
