Synopsis: Fresh and direct Buddhist teachings on how our natural wish to be happy is the best tool we have for true spiritual growth

Buddhahood, says Dzigar Kongtrül, is nothing but an unobstructed experience of the nature of mind, boundlessly spacious and limitlessly compassionate. The trick is that in order to see the mind accurately, we must use the particular aspect of mind he calls natural intelligence.

Natural intelligence enables us to discriminate between what helps or hinders us. But most of all, it’s the part of us that searches for happiness and meaning. In Light Comes Through, he shows us how to skillfully use our wish for happiness as a tool in awakening to the joyous wisdom of mind.

“This is a wonderful fresh look at the amazing potential of our human mind.” —Pema Chödrön, author of When Things Fall Apart
