We often think of enlightenment as something that happens all at once, like a tidal wave that instantly clears away everything impure. In truth, however, realization happens incrementally, from moment to moment to moment. And in any moment when true wisdom is recognized, all concepts and afflictions are freed right on the spot and we can affirm for ourselves that enlightenment is possible. When we do, we experience a moment of the mind of a buddha-"momentary buddhahood."

Author Biography

Anyen Rinpoche was born in Amdo, Tibet, and his Dharma lineage can be traced back directly to the renowned Dzogchen master Patrul Rinpoche. After more than fourteen years of intensive study and solitary retreat he earned the degree of khenpo (master teacher) and became the head scholar of his monastic university. He has taught extensively in Tibet and China and now mentors students throughout Southeast Asia, Japan, and North America. He lives in Colorado.
