We'll also be showing footage from the live BuddhaFest event, June 20-23 in Washington, D.C., and a special encore of past BuddhaFest dharma talks and discussions.

While we wait until June 17 to really get the festivities started, enjoy this dharma talk by Tsoknyi Rinpoche, "Happiness for No Reason: Awakening Essence Love." With his lively, humorous and insightful way of teaching the time tested and ever relevant truths of dharma, Tsoknyi Rinpoche explores how we can uncover and nurture the basic spark of our buddhanature amidst this speedy modern world and our active lives.
