It is important to integrate our experiences of nature with the Dharma. After all, this is where it all begins: earth, water, fire, wind—and the space in which they arise. Our innate, indigenous vision sees the activity of the Dharma mirrored in the landscape. Dudjom Rinpoche said, “Craving for appearances arises as the deity (yidam or ‘mind link’).” The activity of emptiness arises as the symbolic gesture of the radiant mind.

Much Love,
