Enlightenment is not anything new or something we create or bring into existence

Screen Shot 2012-06-22 at 7.53.51 AM“Enlightenment is not anything new or something we create or bring into existence. It is simply discovering within us what is already there. In tibetan, buddha is sang gyay. Sang means that all of the faults have been cleared away, while gyay means “full realization”; just as from darkness, the moon waxes, likewise from ignorance, the qualities of the mind’s intrinsic nature emerge.”

–Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche
