His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s 2015 Liberty Medal Award.

The Enthronement Ceremony of His Holiness Penor Yangsi Rinpoche

The mistaken ideas about the essence arise from fixated attachment that solidifies the present mind as being negative. You believe that noble and positive wisdom will be attained only if present mind is relinquished. This is a mistaken idea in the Mahamudra tradition, because there is no wisdom higher than present mind itself.

— 7th Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche
