Just as a wildflower effortlessly blooms and shares its beauty with the world, we have the capacity to effortlessly love. When we rest in the spaciousness of our original mind, the heart stirs. We experience peace and unlimited compassion. We remember our true nature, a feeling of interconnection and loving kindness toward all beings. Buddha realized and embodied this quality. He taught a Dharma, a way to remember our natural wisdom and compassion.

Later, a realized master named Padmasambhava (‘Lotus Born’) appeared in Tibet to offer the distilled teachings of all the Buddhas. Those teachings have been handed down over hundreds of years and we now receive them in the form of Vajrayana Buddhism. The Natural Mind Dharma Center is dedicated to making the wisdom of Buddha and Padmasambhava accessible to people in this part of the world. May we all bloom.
