"For discovering one?s true inner nature, I think one should try to take out some time, with quiet and relaxation, to think more inwardly and to investigate the inner world. That may help. Then when one is very much involved in hatred or attachment, if there is time or possibility during that very moment, just try to look inward and ask: "What is attachment? What is the nature of anger?


Buddha-Nature exists in everyone no matter how deeply it may be covered over by greed, anger and foolishness, or buried by his own deeds and retribution. Buddha-Nature can not be lost or destroyed; and when all defilements are removed, sooner or later it will reappear."

-His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

Have you ever asked yourself, who am "I"? I mean who am "I" really?

This is your opportunity to discover who you really are. Not just know the outer concept of how you & the world perceive yourself, but the true essence of your mind.

Come discover your ultimate potential, the true nature of your mind, & learn how to cultivate it!


"The nature of our mind is like a crystal lake, very pure, deep, vast, & clear. Our karma, negative emotions, habitual patterns, & concepts are like garbage in which we have covered this pristine lake... But under all that garbage, there still is a pristine lake. Through cultivation we can remove the garbage from our pristine lake and can return to the true essence of our mind."

-Lama Namnang Mingjo Dorje Rinpoche



This series will provide you with the essential points to living a meaningful life; by discovering the true causes of happiness & inner-satisfaction & how to overcoming negative emotions & suffering.

We will be watching & learning from the precious teachings of Lama Namnang Mingjo Dorje Rinpoche, the 68th Lineage Holder of a sacred Lineage of Chinese Vajrayana Buddhism. A living embodiment of compassion & wisdom. His teachings are very heart-felt, inspiring, and are full of his deep understanding, dedication, purity, humility, & heart.

This class will provide everyone with a deep understanding of Buddhist Philosophy, as well as Meditation Practices that will provide everyone with the tools for transforming everyday life.
