Bliss, Imagination, and Actualizing our Potential Swiftly: The Modern Buddhist Approach to Tantra
Through studying Buddha’s Sutra teachings (public teachings) we understand how to attain enlightenment but that attainment can still feel remote to us. Through studying and practicing Buddha’s Tantric teachings (esoteric teachings) we are given a clear vision of what enlightenment is and special tools to accomplish this sublime state swiftly. In Kadampa Buddhism, we practice the union of Sutra and Tantra. In this series, Resident Teacher Kadam Peter Kurczynski will demystify the practice of tantra and show us how to integrate it into our other meditation practices. He will guide us through some of the main tantric methods, such as transforming enjoyments, the skillful use of the imagination in envisioning enlightenment, the development of a blissful mind, as well as an introduction to concepts such as chakras and mantras.
These meditations can be practiced by anyone. Background information and guidance is provided in brief teachings preceding the meditations.
