VividLife Radio's Ed and Deb Shapiro welcomes Peter Fenner to discuss what happens when we go out of our habitual mind into radiant mind?
What happens when we go out of our habitual mind into radiant mind? Radiant mind arises when unconditioned awareness radiates through the totality of our conditioned existence. When we live in radiant mind we experience ourselves as a unique human being, while at the same time resting in a unified expanse of centerless and boundless awareness. This state is called liberation, buddhanature, egolessness, pure presence, nondual wisdom, our natural condition, and effortless being. Peter Fenner was a celibate monk in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition for 9 years and has a Ph.D. in philosophical psychology. Over 35 years he has distilled the essence of traditions like Zen, Dzogchen and the Buddhist Middle Way, and adapted them to suit our post-modern culture. He says: "When we rest in unconditioned awareness, there’s nothing more that we need. It’s the only state that’s totally fulfilling. We cultivate nondual presence integrated with the complexities of daily commitments. Every aspect and dimension of our existence becomes a unique expression of freedom and transcendence."
