The teachings of Buddhism tell us we are all enlightened now, in this moment. But when you’re facing hardship or loss, your courage may wane, and happiness may seem an unattainable goal. When this happens it’s difficult to remember to stop striving and just “be here now.” ZaChoeje Rinpoche understands this, and lends his Tibetan wisdom to our Western ways, for a new understanding of what it means to free yourself from suffering—or struggling, as he defines it—so that you can enter your own happiness with the same simple intent with which you point your cursor and click your mouse. He tells us, “When you are being in the moment, you will realize that you are just one piece of one whole truth. And not only you, but you will see every other being, every other thing, is also part of this one whole thing. So you will lose the sense of ego, but you will get a sense of wholeness. And when you get this sense of unity, that interconnection, you don’t have to do things to become a loving person. You will be a very caring, compassionate, loving person just by realizing that unity. That is the perfection of unity.” (hosted by Justine Willis Toms)


ZaChoeje Rinpoche was born in Nepal, and at the age of sixteen was recognized by the Dalai Lama as the sixth reincarnation of the fifth ZaChoeje Rinpoche. He received the Geshe Lharampa degree, equivalent to a doctorate in Tibetan Buddhism, from the Drepung Loseling Monastery, and in 2001 helped to found the Emaho Institute in Phoenix, Arizona.

He is the co-author, with Ashley Nebelsieck, of:
