Description

When the Buddha had electrified the ancient world with his teachings and his example, people came to him and asked, “What are you? A god, a saint, an angel?” And he replied: “I am awake.” Within this statement is embedded the heart of Buddhism's unique position among the world's spiritual traditions. For as the Buddha showed, each of us can overcome the “sleep” of ordinary consciousness and awaken our hearts and minds to achieve the true freedom that every moment of life offers us.

On Our Buddha Nature, you will join Jack Kornfield, one of the preeminent meditation instructors of our time, for a complete course in Buddhism's most basic foundation for mindful living: the Ten Perfections. These perfections—which include such universal virtues as truthfulness, simplicity, and lovingkindness—offer immediate answers to the problems and challenges we face every day of our lives. By using them as keys, Kornfield teaches, we may unlock the human gate to supreme wisdom and open fully to the perfection within each moment of experience.

In 12 absorbing sessions, Jack Kornfield introduces you to the Ten Paramitas, or inner perfections, and shows how they can bring a sublime new dimension to any spiritual practice. In simple language, he offers meditations and mindfulness techniques that help you open to the perfections you were born with—which are already deeply rooted in your heart. Joy arises naturally in the moment when you begin this opening practice. Richly textured with ideas, poetry, and teaching parables gleaned from many spiritual traditions, this nine-and-a-half-hour audio retreat invites you to experience the truth of life through awakening your own buddha nature.

Listening to this series of teachings was a wonderful way to be redirected inward to find what is most natural to all of us. I also enjoyed Jack Kornfield's gentle and engaging teaching style.

This is a very helpful, informative and entertaining series of longer teachings, followed by useful meditations. The teachings are recorded live before an audience and there are some instances of loud sneezing in the background. However, this is a minor flaw. Hearing the teachings is well worth hearing the sneezing!

This is really a life-changing set of talks. Kornfield is funny and grounded yet incredibly profound. He speaks simultaneously to the great values of humanity and to the ordinary challenges of daily life.
