Dharma Talk


Dharma Teacher Fred Eppsteiner





Siddhartha's Awakening

Tampa | February 28, 2016


In this talk, Fred shares and comments on an account of Siddhartha Gautama's Enlightenment from Thich Nhat Hanh's "Old Path White Clouds."  Fred relates how, although Enlightenment is the goal Buddhism, we have to start where we are by understanding our conditioning through mindfulness and looking deeply.  Then we can dissolve our emotional afflictions through a process of de-conditioning, and finally, we can consciously re-condition ourselves in the direction of awakening.  He also shares how true love comes from understanding the conditioning of others.  Through this process of understanding and working with conditioning, we all have the capacity to become Buddhas.
