Here’s a great opportunity to gain an introduction to a complex subject: Buddha Nature. Our friends at Gyuto Vajrayana Center in San Jose, California are sponsoring this teaching. Please contact them for more information. Hope to see you there!

Uttaratantra Shastra: Buddha Nature
Uttaratantra is one of the Five Treatises by Asanga, written in the 4th century by the great Buddhist master Asanga, which was directly received from Bodhisattva Maitreya. Uttaratantra concisely elucidate existence of Buddha nature in all beings. Uttaratantra sets Buddha’s definitive teaching on ultimate nature of our mind and it’s potential. This text really uplifts practitioner’s aspiration of achieving Buddha hood for others wellbeing and possibility of achieving it. After all, we all have innate seed for Buddha hood or Buddha nature that is exists in all of us.
