TANTRIC TECHNOLOGY: INTEGRATING SUTRA AND TANTRA
WEDNESDAY, MAY 9, 2018 • 7:15 PM – 9:15 PM
The Tantric teachings are the rarest and most precious of all of Buddha’s instructions. Through following the profound path of Tantra we can attain Buddhahood in this life. However, these powerful experiences of Tantra can only be accomplished through a deep understanding and practice of Buddha’s Sutra teachings. Sutra is said to be like the runway, and Tantra the jet that leads us to the city of enlightenment.
Join us for this evening talk where Gen Rigpa will explain how to integrate the motivations and insights of Sutra with the sublime and imaginative meditations of the Tantric path.
The evening will wrap up with refreshment afterwards and time to socialize with Gen Rigpa and other members of our spiritual community. Everyone is welcome.
