Filmed in France in August 2011, "Being Your True Nature" introduces a new form of education that enables people of all ages, cultures and traditions to lead a happy and meaningful life and be of service to others.
Lama Thubten Yeshe was born in 1935 into a simple farming family in central Tibet. He was both a scholar of traditional Buddhist texts and a radical free-thinker, with a passion for sharing the essence of what he had learned and experienced with the wider world. In 1974 he became one of the first Tibetan Buddhist masters to travel abroad, along with his devoted student and companion Lama Zopa.
Lama Yeshe soon became deeply critical of the modern approach to education, saying that it often misses the most important point: to inspire people about their potential, and to encourage the lifelong development of a warm heart and a smart, inquiring mind. Instead, he envisioned 'a new kind of education' that would present the profound wisdom of all religions in a way that transcends individual countries, philosophies and religions, and which contains both scientific and spiritual dimensions without compromising either; an education in techniques to bring out the inherent compassion and wisdom that lies in the heart of every living being.
This is what we mean by Universal Education for Compassion and Wisdom. It is a system of inner development that aims to create a more peaceful world by enabling people of all ages, cultures and traditions to lead a happy and meaningful life and to be of service to others.
