Lama Surya Das – Ep. 11 – Buddha Nature, Sky Gazing, and Dukkha

Lama Surya Das provides a timeless reminder of the broad and all-encompassing nature of the true Buddha. All beings are endowed with this innate spiritual potential. Sky gazing is described and encouraged as a means for disabling resistance and moving into union with the vast space in which we exist. Question and answer topics include karmic purification, the role of biology in free will, and the subjective nature of existence.

“It is the unenlightened life that is dissatisfying.”

For more on the Buddha nature, listen to Lama Surya Das in discussion “Awakening Now“.
