How to Imagine Enlightenment
Our imagination is so powerful. It is a remarkable quality of the mind that we first create objects with our imagination and then bring them into our everyday reality. Everything starts in the imagination. Even our Dharma realizations, such as liberation and enlightenment, are developed in dependence upon our imagination.
In this workshop, we learn to harness the power of our imagination in the creative Tantric practice of Self-Generation. By gaining the skill of imagining correctly using Buddha's instructions, we create a new enlightened reality for ourselves and others. We will also be introduced to the Tantric Deities of Buddha Heruka and Vajrayogini.
2021 Intro to Tantra Workshops
While Tantra is a very popular word, the meaning of Buddhist Tantra is not well known today. Tantra is an important part of the Buddhist path to the unsurpassed happiness of enlightenment. In these monthly 2-hour workshops, Resident Teacher Trina Gunther will share the key meanings and practices of Tantra, as presented in Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s book Modern Buddhism.
