Buddhist insight is not informed by belief, culture, or metaphysical assumptions, but on observation and critical anyalysis. In that it does not exclude the conscious observer, its insights are formulated in terms or two different experiences: one of delusion that circles in suffering - a condition that needs to be remedied - samsara, and one of awareness that is free and awake to a natural potential of wisdom, love, and power, our innate condition that needs to be discovered - nirvana.

Jakob Leschly began his studies of Buddhism in 1974 and is a student of several great teachers, particularly Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche (pictured above), and Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche. Jakob has been an appointed translator and teacher for Siddhartha’s Intent since 1993.
