The Tantric or Vajrayana tradition is intimately woven into Tibetan Buddhism. The practice of Tantra aims to transform our body, mind and emotions into their innate pure nature. If we exclude any one of these three there will not be complete transformation. Our mind becomes the awakened nature of a Buddha’s mind, our emotional energy becomes the basis of the indestructible body of bliss of a Buddha’s awakening and our physical body is the vehicle within which this transformation unfolds. Tantric practice is often considered complicated and only for so called advanced practitioners. However, if we understand the essential way in which tantra works to transform us we see how it is something very practical we can engage in right now, in a way that will enrich and deepen our lives. It brings the recognition of what is sacred in our life and how we can embody our innate nature in all that we do to benefit others.
During this weekend Rob will introduce some of the essential principles within tantric practice, to begin to clarify its value and relevance to our experience of transformation and awakening.
