Sanity within Chaos


Believe it or not, it is possible to dwell in a state of calmness even within the most intense periods of outer, or even inner, chaos. Fortunately for ourselves, the Buddha emphasized that we do not have to believe this; we can actually experience it for ourselves. According to the Buddhist approach to meditation, the possibility of “achieving” calmness exists because calmness is a quality of our mind’s native or natural state; it doesn’t need to be added. Once we connect with this inherent calmness even a little bit, we can recall it in flashes even in the most blustery of situations. During this program, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche will share pith advice and instruction on how to access calmness as if it were in palm of the hand.
