Our Pristine Mind

The true nature of our mind is brilliant, clear, and joyful. But we don't experience this reality amid the swirl of stresses, thoughts, and emotions of day-to-day life. This talk will offer practical suggestions on uncovering our naturally comfortable state of mind and reconnecting with the unconditional happiness that is already within us. Using straightforward, accessible language, Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche discusses the path of Pristine Mind meditation, a practice from the profound teachings known as Dzogchen. This path is a realistic, natural process that can be practiced and experienced by anyone.
