“Taking Care of the ‘Child of Our Mind’ – Our Buddha Nature”

The Buddha taught that all beings possess the potential for spiritual awakening, and as such all are worthy of care and respect. But sometimes we act against our own best interests, and engage in holding negative attitudes toward ourselves and others. Lama Kathy describes traditional teachings about Buddha Nature and then offers an analogy – that our Buddha Nature is like our most precious child – to help us take a more positive attitude toward ourselves and our potential.
