Wednesdays, 28 February to 28 March

The good news is that we all have the potential, right here and now within our minds, for complete freedom from all suffering and its causes, and to experience full awakening (our Buddha Nature). But it is difficult to see how this is possible given that our minds are currently clouded with mental pollution (afflictions) and wrong views about the nature of the mind and how we experience reality.
In this 5 week course you will learn what Buddha nature actually means, how we can encourage it’s awakening within our own consciousness, and look at some Indian and Tibetan texts describing features and benefits of having this potential for awakening – our internal ‘hidden gem’.
“The Buddha himself said that Buddha nature lies within each of us and its nature is pure, clean and clear…It’s important to know this. A clean clear mind exists within us; the fundamental nature of our consciousness is pure. But while our mind has its own essence of clarity, it’s covered by a contaminating heavy blanket of concepts. Nevertheless, its nature is still clean clear; our consciousness is clean clear. Therefore we have to recognise, “My nature, the essence of my consciousness, is not totally negative. The pure, clean clear nature of my mind exists within me right now.” Lama Thubten Yeshe
