Synopsis: A compilation of scholarly and insightful discourses that provides a clear and elegant introduction to the very essence of the Buddhist perspective…In Being Ultimately Perfect, the 12th Chamgon Kenting Tai Situpa explains that all teachings of the Buddha are directed towards making our lives meaningful and purposeful, apart from taming the mind and realizing the essence of all dharma. He also contends that enlightenment is not düche (the result of causes or conditions) – it is beyond that. This volume will help you gain a deep understanding of varied topics, such as the purpose of life and the practice of dharma in everyday life. The author describes the relationship among contentment, stress and greed, and talks about the nature of the mind, limitlessness and primordial wisdom. The book also presents a series of edifying dialogues with several students and is reader-friendly, comprehensive and remarkably easy to understand.
