Awareness or smirti is the heart of Buddhist practice and the teachings of Buddha. Yet it doesn’t belong to Buddhism. Awareness is intrinsic to each of us. It is a state of being conscious and rising above our mental habits that keep us bound to internal limitations. Through awareness we can see the true nature of all things and find unfathomable joy beyond conditions.

Anam Thubten grew up in Tibet, entering the Buddhist path at an early age in the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. He is the founder and spiritual advisor of Dharmata Foundation, teaching widely in the U.S. He is the author of The Magic of Awareness and No Self, No Problem.
