Introduction To Tantra, Transform Your World and Your Experience
July 10 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm UTC-4$15 – $30
ABOUT THIS EVENT
Although the idea of Tantra is very popular these days, many people misunderstand its real meaning and it is often misused. In Buddhism, Tantra is a very special practice that harnesses the power of our imagination and the power of Buddha’s blessings to quickly lead us to a state of permanent peace and happiness.
Buddha gave many teachings to help living beings achieve both temporary and permanent peace. His Tantric teachings in particular are methods that guide us through inner transformation and the experience of deep inner peace. By understanding these teachings, putting them into practice, and receiving blessings, we can develop both our wisdom and our compassion until it produces a bliss so powerful that it completely purifies our mind and we quickly attain enlightenment.
In this workshop, you will be given an introduction to authentic Buddhist Tantra, through which we will gain an understanding of how essential Tantric practice is to our freedom from suffering and to benefit others. We will also learn some practical methods we can use right away to begin to transform our world and experience.
