The Buddhist Models of Consciousness

About the Teaching

The tantric approach to the Buddhist path of enlightenment embodies important concepts and principles, such as the fundamental purity of our mind, the principle of transformation, utilisation of desire and pleasure in the spiritual path, and so forth, which is just as relevant to our 21st century living as it is in ancient India and Tibet. With the guide of Lama Yeshe’s book, Introduction to Tantra: The Transformation of Desire, we will engage in a series of guided meditations to put these ideas to the test and find out for ourselves how we may be able to manifest our innate Buddha-nature and get a taste of what is in store for us on this tantric path.

All are welcome; no prerequisite needed. As we are only exploring the general principles of tantra that do not involve practices traditionally guarded by vows of secrecy, anyone interested in this topic is welcome to join in.
