Lama Tharchin Rinpoche gives a teaching on the Kunzang Monlam in 2001 during the Autumnal Equinox tsok, a time of change and transition that is considered especially powerful to recite the prayer. In the wake of the 9/11 attacks in the US, Rinpoche addresses the true source of our suffering and anxiety and teaches how reciting and meditating on the prayer during times of uncertainty and difficulty can lead us to enlightenment. That state of being, Buddha Kuntuzangpo, has never been confused or deluded. It is the fully enlightened changeless state of the dharmakaya. As Buddhist practitioners, it is this state that we meditate on and develop confidence in so that we can blossom our own changeless wisdom buddha nature. Rinpoche teaches us that the Great Perfection Prayer of Kuntuzangpo is like a drink of nectar, especially during times of suffering.
