In this series of talks, esteemed scholar-practitioner, Khenpo Trokpa Tulku, describes how each of us fully possesses the potential for realization, but that we are obscured by afflictive emotions and cognitive obscurations. In order to free ourselves, we need to walk a spiritual path that effectively diagnoses our deluded state of suffering and applies the remedies to remove it. Khenpo Trokpa Tulku explains that through studying, contemplating and meditating, and through endeavoring in the three trainings of discipline, concentration, and wisdom, we are able to transform our subconscious mind in such a way that it naturally discerns what is correct and incorrect, leading us to a state of freedom. Furthermore, Khenpo elaborates on the foundational teachings of dependent origination and the Four Seals of Dharma, and the correct view of reality, as well as the various vehicles of Buddhism. Khenpo says that ultimately our job is to attain the realization that liberates us from the torments of hope and fear.
