It seems there are some who see Buddhist practice as a path of tame irrelevance: a way that promotes peace (aka passivity), gentleness (aka weakness) and non-violence (aka non-action) . . . docile, inconsequential, tuned-out. Of course, anyone who has gazed -- and plunged -- into the deep, fiercely loving eyes of a trusted lama, or who lives and pr…
 
I have heard stories of a man, regarded by some to be odd in his ways, who lives camped on a small ridge overlooking a creek near the bottom of a particularly deep watershed ravine deep in the mountains . . . a wilderness man who is said to be a deeply awakened Buddhist practitioner, perhaps even a burgeoning Buddha. And so, early one morning, I se…
 
Beginning with a discussion about the Pineal gland -- and prompted by aspersions of "narrow-mindedness" -- here are some thoughts on the nature of imagination and its role on the path of Buddhist study, practice and engagement. According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of imagination includes "the ability to think of new and/or familiar things i…
 
Some people look upon crying as an indication of self-pity or weakness, a loss of self-control or indication of some sort of emotional disorder or infirmity . . . or perhaps merely a means of manipulation. But for those on the Buddhist path, tears often emerge for reasons quite different; signaling a profound opening to a richer embrace of our rang…
 
The question of how to most effectively communicate Dharma insights and sensitivities with those not familiar with Buddhist perspectives was raised at a recent gathering. Some ideas on how notions such as Interpersonal Relationships, Navigating Impermanence, Patience, Joy, Confidence and Well-Being arise through understanding-born wisdom . . . and …
 
Tibetan Buddhism is a path of accumulated wisdom, a path of practice and engagement . . . leading away from ignorant self-centeredness toward true virtue and happiness. It is the way of Dharma, of honesty -- beautiful, challenging, perhaps scary at times and always beneficial. It leads to a reality so intuitively correct and freeing that, upon enco…
 
There are countless Buddhas throughout the universe continuously working for our benefit by emanating in every sort of fashion . . . bringing about insights, realizations and perhaps even moments of progressive awakening. In Buddhism these experiences are known as blessings, and the only thing that restricts our direct knowledge of them is our own …
 
(Written and inspired by the joy of HH Dalai Lama's 86th birthday.) An excerpt: "Things are going well for me, Mother. I am in good health and enthusiastic in my work. Intellectual, imaginative, stimulating, virtuous and joyous is this path; I am profoundly appreciative to you for providing me with the life force that has enabled me to journey upon…
 
Most Westerners equate Mind with thinking, but in Buddhism it is acknowledged to be vastly more . . . Mind is the entire spectrum of our inner experiences: thoughts, feelings, perceptions, consciousness, subconsciousness, unconsciousness. It is our perceiver, translator, reflector and mirror. Without it there is nothing . . . within it is everythin…
 
From the 17th century French Canadian basilica of Sainte-Anne de Beaupre, to a young couple performing Medicine Buddha-oriented offerings in a verdant meadow in the midst of Washington State's Alpine Enchantments, virtuous paths of belief and practice abound as years and miles melt together. Good hearts . . . confident minds . . . clear and harmoni…
 
Buddhist practice leads us to see that our mind is beyond precious and teaches us how to tend to it, learning to discern those states of mind that are unwholesome or harmful and those that are beneficial. Once identified, we choose -- hopefully wisely -- which to let pass and which to nourish. This is the animated structure of beneficial Karmic act…
 
On the eve of Saka Dawa, the full moon day on which Siddhartha's birth, enlightenment and passing into Parinirvana upon his death are joyously celebrated in Tibetan Buddhist communities and among practitioners world-wide, here is a heartfelt dispatch to him . . . along with a request. (Length: 14 minutes) Presented by Mark Winwood of the Chenrezig …
 
The Dharma path is one of grace; teachings are everywhere. Be curious, remain humble. Read, watch and listen carefully . . . learn from everyone and everything and continue doing so while maintaining your sense of humor. You already have all you'll ever need -- lace up your traveling shoes and get on with it . . . in short order you'll be walking d…
 
She is within each and every step you take . . . She guides you toward moments of clarity and wisdom, helping to free you when you are confused and distracted. She is safety . . . She is brilliance . . . She is fearlessness . . . She is your wisest self, your very best mind, your kindest heart . . . She is Awakening . . . She is Precious . . . She …
 
They are the Coastal Redwoods, aka Sequoia Sempervirens -- native to the American West, living among the clouds and foggy canyons of the Pacific coastal mountains. Bunyan-esque and virtually indestructible (except by human loggers and their saw mills), they are perhaps our most noble Dharma teachers. (Length: 13 minutes) Shared here by Mark Winwood…
 
For your consideration: If you would receive great wealth to forget all the Dharma you've ever learned and/or experienced . . . your insights and understandings, knowledge and practices . . . all of it, every bit . . . and by so doing slip back into the mind you had before first encountering the Dharma . . . might you do it? (Length: 12 minutes) Wr…
 
We live in a world of often-forgettable sound bites: advertising jingles, political slogans, song verses, news headlines, tweets, jargon, etc. Here is a message we believe is significantly worth remembering, it comes from the 8th century Indian master, Shantideva . . . (Length: 10 minutes) Written and presented by Mark Winwood of the Chenrezig Proj…
 
Change -- sometimes wanted, often unwanted -- is a central feature of life. It can be both subtle and obvious; exhilarating, confusing, exhausting and relieving. It will often spark deep sadness or relief, resistance or grasping . . . and it rarely comes in a form we prefer. Here is a story of Charlie and Olivia . . . and change. (Length: 11 minute…
 
It is in the river waters of the Pacific North that Salmon, the essence of nature's wild and bountiful grandeur, are born and, after years swimming free in the vast ocean, return to spawn. Herein are some thoughts on the lives --and the ultimate dignity -- of these regional sentient treasures. (Length: 10 minutes) Written by Mark Winwood of the Che…
 
Q: What role does Karma play in the ongoing experiences of our rebirth and next life? A: An innately intrinsic one -- you are architecting the tone and tenor of your future mind now, moment-by-moment . . . just as was done by those who came before you. Meaningful awareness of this can be profoundly beneficial. (Length: 11 minutes) Written and prese…
 
As much as Tibetan Buddhism is an intrinsic aspect of the Himalaya, so also are those mysterious beings known to the world as the Yeti. Noting the devastating earthquake(s) that struck Nepal in April of 2015, we share this "might have been" tale. (Length: 10 minutes) Written and presented by Mark Winwood of the Chenrezig Project. Background music c…
 
Chitray is a tiny hamlet perched on a Himalayan ridge along the Sikkim-Nepal border. For one Western trekker, absorbing the 'effects' of sitting alongside its stupa early on a foggy morning, Chitray became one of the most far-reaching places she's ever been. (Length: 9 minutes) Written and presented by Mark Winwood of the Chenrezig Project. Backgro…
 
It is said that Buddhas -- fully awakened beings -- may manifest in any place, at any time and in any form . . . even as a spiny urchin in the icy waters of the Pacific Northwest's Salish Sea. (Length: 8 minutes) Written and presented by Mark Winwood of the Chenrezig Project. Background music composed and performed by the renowned SF Bay-area music…
 
Consider: Emptiness -- that often referred to, generally misunderstood aspect of mind that is so often referred to in the Buddhist wisdom teachings . . . is anything but empty. It is within the limitless nature of emptiness – the emptiness of any inherent and consistent self -- that the vastness of our potential(s) dwell. So what is it we are empty…
