In Buddhism we call Enlightenment the natural state. But with billions of human beings on Earth thinking and acting, it is difficult for us to even quiet our mind. We are all incarnate Buddhas and we seek our own innocence. Find out how we can become more aware of our true nature and reside in the natural state.

Winning

"In Nirvana there's no winning or losing, but as long as you're in the relative worlds, there is winning and losing. Only the completely enlightened are beyond winning and losing, and they had to win to get to that point." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz What is winning in Rama’s view? Winning in Zen is: 1) being able to do what you want to do, and 2) knowing the Still Center of Being. You win by meditating to gain control of your time, life and mind, and by building a winning identity.

Tantric Buddhism

Tantric Buddhism is a pathway to Enlightenment. In Tantra we do not avoid the world. We embrace it. We believe that God exists in everything. We focus on the clear light of reality in and through all experiences.

Six Worlds

There is more than just this world and heaven and hell. In Buddhist cosmology we realize there are many worlds and that these worlds really exist inside our own mind. Everything exists within our own mind. How we navigate through these worlds and what the path is that leads beyond all worlds this talk addresses.

All we need to do is still our mind. Find out as a spiritual aspirant what attitudes and actions can help us on our journey.

Meditation

Meditation is about making your mind calm and quiet. And if the earth was not so overpopulated and toxic, that would be an easy thing to do. It's kind of tricky to meditate in this age. Rama figured out a way to make it easier -- which is to meditate to enlightened music. He explains that approach in this talk.

Buddhism

"Buddhism is the enlightenment cycle -- and there are different types of it. Principally there is short path and long path Buddhism. The long path is more of the religious aspect, that is to say, the church aspect: the practice of reading sutras, healthy ways of living, a certain amount of prayer, a little meditation. The esoteric aspect of Buddhism, which is short path Buddhism, is meditation." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
