Buddha Weekly: Buddhist Practices, Mindfulness, Meditation

“Every one has Buddha Nature.” A teaching video: Venerable Zasep Rinpoche with mantra chanting by Yoko Dharma

Venerable Zasep Tulku Rinpoche.

“Everyone has Buddha Nature.” — Zasep Rinpoche

In a short video teaching, Venerable Zasep Tulku Rinpoche explains why understanding “Buddha Nature” — in Sanskrit, tathāgatagarbha — can really inspire your Buddhist practice. This short teaching was in response to a question from a student.

With permission, five minutes of beautiful mantra chanting of the Heart Sutra Mantra with Yoko Dharma ends the session with meditational video images.

The student asked: What is Buddha Nature? Why is it important? How is it different from the concept of soul?
