Always Awakening

Available on Amazon

The word Buddha means “awakened one” or “the enlightened one.” This title refers to one who perceives directly the illusory, limited, and conflicted nature of reality common to humanity, and the false identity formed on this misguided foundation. With this awakening, everything changes; without it, nothing changes. Awakening therefore is and has been humanity’s greatest challenge. Without comparison, Always Awakening explores how this insight was addressed 2,500 years ago by Gautama Siddhartha, and in a contemporary context, language, and metaphor by Krishnamurti.

Always Awakening represents a rare and exclusive collection of candid interviews, over fifteen hours of video with transcripts, with his Eminence Professor Samdhong Rinpoche; a renown Buddhist Scholar, the first Kalon Tripa (Prime Minister) of the Central Tibetan Administration in Exile, a close and lifelong associate of His Holiness the Dalia Lama and the only individual in the world with this cultural background, training and insight to explore Buddhist teachings, personally and for many years, with J. Krishnamurti.

Available in paperback for $20.00
