Introduction to Tantra
- awakening the Buddha within
Saturday 20 April 2013 with Western Buddhist monk, Gen Kelsang Thekchen
Tantra, also known as Secret Mantra or Vajrayana is a special method to purify our world, our self, our enjoyments, and our activities; and if we put this method into practice we will attain enlightenment very quickly.
Because our world, our self, our enjoyments and our activities are the nature of our mind, when our mind is impure they are impure, and when our mind becomes pure through purification practice they become pure. There are many different levels of purifying our mind. The subtle mistaken appearance of our mind cannot be purified through the practice of Sutra alone; we need to engage in the practice of Highest Yoga Tantra.
Although Tantra is very popular, not many people understand its real meaning. On this special day course learn what Tantra is, how it works and why it is such a powerful practice.
This is a perfect introduction leading up to the Highest Yoga Tantra Empowerment being given at this year’s NKT-IKBU Summer Festival.
