Tuning in to Our Highest Potential
The practice of Buddhist meditation helps us to tune in to the extraordinary potential for peace, happiness, love and other good qualities that exist within our mind. Buddha described this potential as our Buddha nature, our potential for enlightenment. The more we tune in to these qualities, seeing them as indicators of our highest potential, the more we naturally express these qualities in our life. In this way we begin to feel that our life is both an expression of and a journey towards enlightenment.
A person who is tuned in to their highest potential in this way, and who carries a wish in their hearts to truly benefit others, is known as a bodhisattva. In this series, based on Geshe Kelsang Gyasto’s groundbreaking book, Modern Buddhism, we will explore how to be a bodhisattva in the modern world.
