Lama Surya Das – Ep. 28 – Reliable Refuge

Reliable Refuge

“Our own body is like the Sangha, our energy the Dharma, and our heart-mind the Buddha”

Surya Das reminds us that to rest in the empty and luminous nature of mind is to practice the ultimate form of refuge. We are all Buddhas by nature, but we must recognize this fact before we can embody it. Equanimity is revealed in balancing the absolute, the emptiness, and the mystery with the relative causation of karma and compassionate action. To not get lost in the illusion of expectation is to walk the path toward freedom.
