Tantra is a profound and powerful method to transform the mind from delusion to sanity. And it is one that is often misunderstood.
Explore the methods and concepts of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition through talks, meditation and discussion in an accessible and non-technical way. This course is suitable for beginners, although it will make more sense if you have some experience of the Buddha’s teachings, particularly the Lam rim (Stages of the Path).
“FPMT’s educational approach is not a linear one. While it is recommended that one attend introductory or foundation level programs before embarking on more advanced programs, we allow for the fact that different individuals have different karmic propensities and a range of qualities which may impact how they wish to approach their study and practice. It is common within FPMT to engage in tantric practices simultaneous to study and meditation on the sutra aspects of lam-rim, as they complement one another to bring about quick realizations of the path. In addition, our tradition emphasizes the importance of ﬁnding one’s own spiritual teacher on whom one can rely for guidance and advice for one’s study and practice.”
