"Clearing the Lens"

Lama Tsomo often uses the phrase, “clearing the lens,” or “cleaning your windshield,” to describe focusing our thoughts and training our mind to see what is true. Ever wonder where that comes from? 

In Buddhism, the word for enlightenment is “sangye”. “San” meaning clearing away the delusions and bad habits of the mind and “gye” meaning developing and bringing forth our true nature.

All we have to do is clear away the stuff that isn’t true, and bring forth our true nature.
