You don’t need to rely on anybody else’s goodness. You have a resource already, which is your own goodness. Your are already good, and you can actually transmit that goodness to others. In Buddhism, we call this buddha-nature. Examine yourself and your state of being. You will find that you have the heart of goodness in you.
Our yearlong commemoration of the 25th anniversary of Chögyam Trungpa’s death continues in our November magazine with “Jolly Good,” a previously unpublished teaching about the heart of the Shambhala teachings and the sense of goodness we can all experience personally.
