Padmavajra evokes the spirit of Tantric Buddhism, which transforms the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha from abstract ideals into living qualities of our present experience. He explores the guru, the yidam and the dakini as Tantric embodiments of Enlightenment here and now, sharing stories from his own experience of practice.
This sangha night theme explores the scary, exhilarating, radical and challenging nature of the Tantric Dharma. Over the course of these talks we will be forging a Western tantra to bring the vital spirit of Vajrayana teachings into our actual lives.
Questions for reflection and discussion:
How much are you giving yourself to Buddhist practice, prioritising ethics, meditation and study in your life?
Are there people in your life who face you moments of ‘stark confrontation with reality’?
What are you prepared to give for Enlightenment?
