"If you realize your own mind you will become a Buddha; you should not seek Buddhahood elsewhere." More than 2500 years ago the person known as Buddha investigated the nature of the mind and developed a comprehensive theory of consciousness. Indeed, he famously concluded that those who seek enlightenment should strive to realize their own minds. Gen Kelsang Dorje, Buddhist monk, Resident Teacher for Vajrayana Kadampa Buddhist Center, will explore this central tenet of Buddhist philosophy, as well as comment on the Buddhist perspective on the nature and function of the mind, the true nature of reality, and the relationship of the "I" to the mind.
