“Ordinary people do not question the commonly accepted version of reality. They conform to the standard values of subduing enemies and cherishing friends and family. Materialism, ambition and mundane achievements are the worldly hallmarks of success. We experience the phenomenal world and our minds as solid and truly existent. Very few people doubt these assertions and question their solidity. Yet, the process of disbelief is the first step on the spiritual path.”
Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche was considered one of the greatest Tibetan Buddhist masters of his time. Urgyen Rinpoche spoke about “the Great Middle Way,” called Dzogchen. He died on February 13, 1996.
