What Does a Buddha DO All Day?!

HOMAGE TO THE BUDDHA. HOMAGE TO THE DHARMA. HOMAGE TO THE SANGHA.
HOMAGE TO THE LAMA WHO EMBODIES ALL THREE!


The Buddha's teachings tell us that we are all, by nature, buddhas.

But how would it FEEL to be a buddha?
What would be DIFFERENT about us?
What would we DO with our time and energy?

The answers to these and so many other questions are contained in the teachings on The 6 Paramitas.
 
Thanks to my master Ringu Tulku Rinpoche for tirelessly and continually offering these precious jewels. Of all the masters currently travelling and teaching worldwide, RTR must be one of the busiest. 

Despite health concerns and requests from his advisers and loved ones, Rinpoche's official teaching schedule often rises to over 300 days a year!
Many thanks also to his student Tom Zachmeier for filming the Six Paramitas teachings so inspiringly. You can view them HERE

We don't have to wait til we are enlightened to ENGAGE with the world in an AWAKENED manner.

The Six PARAMITAS literally show us HOW TO BE in the world, HOW TO ENGAGE with the world and its beings ... with all phenomena.
This sense of 'Paramita' being 'Transcendent' and 'Perfection' is a personal call across 2600 years. It is a direct exhortation from the Heart of Compassion and the Wisdom Mind of the Buddha himself which appeals to YOUR own Heart of Compassion and Wisdom Mind.

The message is pure and simple ... WAKE UP! ... and ENGAGE!

... THEN HAVE A LITTLE REST
