In this video series we suggest a practical but profound way forward for the Buddhist tradition, helping to return spirituality to the central and fundamental place it has had in human life for most of our existence on earth—but has, for the last few hundred years, increasingly been losing respect.

Why be a Buddhist, when you can become the Buddha? With this simple question, Lama Surya Das cuts directly to the heart of the integral spiritual impulse, hinting at a secret that lies at the center of all the world’s spiritual traditions. An exemplary teacher of Dzogchen Buddhism, Lama Surya delivered this presentation with diamond-tipped clarity, precision, and wit, suggesting a few ways we can carry this realization for ourselves through our day-to-day lives while reminding us how simple it all really is: the most sublimely ordinary experience you will ever know.
