The Magic of Awareness by Anam Thubten


The paradox of awareness is very profound and yet very simple. It can’t be described because it has no objective qualities and no limitation. Sometimes it comes naturally to the surface when we are fully in the present moment and no longer lost in thought or mental projections. Pure consciousness is neither high nor low, neither pleasant nor unpleasant, neither good nor bad. No matter where we are, no matter what we are doing, we always have an immediate access to that inner stillness. It can be experienced in an instant in all circumstances once we know how to pay attention to it. It is utterly peaceful and it is also insightful, so it sees through all illusions. Whenever there is a moment of being deluded, we can use that moment to practice settling in the very perfect sphere of the Buddha mind without trying to change anything. When we reside in that liberated mind, we find the very thing we have been seeking all along.

Anam Thubten grew up in Tibet and undertook Buddhist training in the Nyingma tradition at an early age.

Anam Thubten Rinpoche’s Message to the world

Anam Thubten Rinpoche was born in Tibet and entered into Buddhist
training in the Nyingma tradition at young age. Among his teachers, he had a special affinity toward a very inspiring Dharma teacher named Lama Tsurlo, who became his main mentor. Lama Tsurlo’s kindness and wisdom gave him the firm base to advance in his dharma practice, and still serves as a source of inspiration in his ever-unfolding love of true Dharma, as well as his work as a teacher.

In the 1990s, Anam Thubten came to America, and people began requesting Dharma teachings from him. Since then, he has been traveling and teaching extensively in the U.S. and abroad. He is the founder of the Dharmata Foundation and the author of various articles and books in both the Tibetan and English language. His first book in English appeared under the title “No Self, No Problem”. A revised edition of this title is newly released by Snow Lion Publications. Anam Thubten’s teachings mainly draw from Prajnaparamita, the timeless non-conceptual wisdom of Buddha.
