From this book we have the opportunity to discover buddha nature, the potential in all of us to attain buddhahood, and a fundamental concept of Buddhism that has not often been written about for a Western audience. Unlike what we may believe, that buddhahood is meant for few, this book opens us up to the understanding of, and confidence in, our full potential.
This book presents teachings that Shamar Rinpoche gave on buddha nature in Dhagpo Kagyu Ling, France. In a very inspiring way, the author clearly points out what really counts: the heart of awakening is nothing other than our true nature, and therefore all of us, in fact every sentient being, can awaken to their buddha qualities. Shamar Rinpoche bases his explanations on the text “Revealing Buddha Nature” by the 3rd Karmapa, Rangjung Dorje (1284-1339). A translation by the book’s translator of the underlying text is also included.
