Summary

Here's an opportunity to explore the Ten Perfections with one of the pre-eminent meditation instructors of our time. The Perfections are Buddhism's most basic foundation and include such universal virtues as truthfulness, simplicity, and lovingkindness. These virtues are not remote possibilities - they are immediate answers to the problems and challenges we face every day of our lives. In this comprehensive curriculum, Jack Kornfield introduces the 10 paramitas (inner perfections,) and shows how they can bring a sublime new dimension to any spiritual practice. With meditations and mindfulness techniques to help you understand and practice the Ten Perfections, this audio retreat invites you to experience life to the fullest.

Always fabulous...

A series of lectures on various Buddhist characteristics. Beautifully narrated, with compassion, grace and humour. If you've listened to Jack before you'll know what to expect. If you haven't then I would recommend starting with his 'Introduction to Buddhism'... Equally awesome! :-) _/\_

Jack Kornfield is a great story teller and teacher. He weaves helpful, profound explanations of the dharma in with modern contexts and timeless stories.

Spiritual wisdom

I am just beginning on the path to finding the middle way. This book is humorous at times and then like an arrow to the heart in the next moment. This book will always be on my devices so that I can listen again and find something new.

Chuckles and tears

Jack has me laughing out loud, with his subtle, warm humor. I stopped mid walk to finish laughing at "Is this abuse?" (those who know, know).
I would recommend this book to anyone, Buddhist or not.
Only downside is the quality of the recording, sometimes I can't actually hear what's being said, but mostly it's alright.

A great presentation. Very helpful & Inspiring

If you could sum up Your Buddha Nature in three words, what would they be?

Helpful, Inspiring, fun

Have you listened to any of Jack Kornfield???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

The performance is on older media but the teachings are presented with such an engaging lucidity - This is my favorite Jack Kornfield recording.

Any additional comments?

Please make this available in type 4 format. I recommend this and people can no longer access it.

Great listen

Jack is not only knowledgeable of what he teaches, but has a very soft, slow yet powerful voice.
I loved it.
