The Practical Esoteric

Modified on: August 22, 2019

Imagine translating 2,500 years of philosophical teaching through four layers of language (from Pali, through Tibetan, then Hindi, to English) and condensing it into a 30-minute lesson.

That’s what happened in our Sanctuary this past Wednesday night. And it will happen again next Wednesday, August 28 at 5:30 pm.

Tibetan Buddhism is famous for its elaborate rituals and esoteric meditative practices. But it has another genius: translating its wisdom into the simplest, most ordinary, directly relevant terms.

We hear this in the Dalai Lama’s teaching: “My religion is kindness.” An entire spiritual culture is concentrated into one word: “kindness”. And does that ever ring true.

Lama Ahbay Rinpoche works in the same way, offering simple, lighthearted, directly relevant insight into our human condition: how to be less angry and more peaceful; how to fear less and love more.

He has come to us across centuries and continents. Won’t you come across town to hear him?

Peace to all–
