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–
