Lama Surya Das – Ep. 15 – The First Moment of Wonder

First Moment

Surya Das describes the natural and awe-inspiring state of Dzogchen, before we begin to think and conceptualize the world around us. This initial moment of wonder is what we hope to connect with and reside in through our spiritual practice. Chains of discursive thinking tie us down to states of perceptual judgment and negative thought patterns. But a thought can’t distract you if there is no you to judge it. If we can cut the chain, we cut the Karma.
