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.

As Buddhist wisdom spread around the world, a realized master, Padmasambhava (Lotus Born), appeared in Tibet to offer the distilled teachings of all the Buddhas. Due to the skillful understanding and compassion of his close student, Yeshe Tsogyal, those teachings have been handed down over hundreds of years. The Natural Mind Dharma Center is dedicated to making the teachings of Buddha and Padmasambhava’s lineage heirs accessible to people in this part of the world. May we all bloom.
