New edition. The heart of Buddhist teaching is the method on how to let confusion dawn as wisdom, recognizing the awakened state that is already present in oneself.
In Repeating the Words of the Buddha, Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche unfolds the path to enlightenment, which is simply the gradual uncovering of this awakened state. With the benevolence and brilliance of a realized being, Rinpoche illustrates in a lucid, humerous fashion the essential points of spiritual practice, inseperable from everyday life.
"Buddhahood is not outside. It is not some `thing' that magically descends upon you and transforms you into a Buddha. The basis for awakening to enlightenment is to experience the Buddha in yourself. The qualities of an enlightened Buddha are not his qualities, they are the qualities of the Buddha nature fully manifest. We also possess that same potential but it is hidden, lying dormant." Tulku Urgyen.
"Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche teaches in a style called Instruction Through Personal Experience. He has spent many years in retreat, practicing in the sense of assimilating the teachings within his experience. Consequently he speaks from experience, expressing what he himself has undergone." Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche.
