The Buddha taught many forms of meditation for the purpose of providing enlightenment paths to trainees of varying predispositions. Tantric Buddhism is the path for the hopelessly indulgent, those who have carried ease to a fine art, those with great taste but little time for trivia. It is a yoga of living in the face of death, of doing without a do-er, and with a very fine line between in-the-zone and simply spaced out. If you like that sort of thing, this talk will tell you how it's done.
Glenn Mullin lived in the Himalayas from 1972 to 1984, where he trained in tantric Buddhism under numerous Tibetan masters. An internationally renowned author and Tibetologist who has lectured and conducted workshops throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and the Far East, he has published over a dozen books on Tibetan Buddhism, has worked as a field specialist and script consultant on Tibet-related films, and has co-produced five audio recordings of Tibetan sacred temple music. His latest books are Tsonkhapa's Six Yogas of Naropa and Readings on the Six Yogas of Naropa (Snow Lion). We are very fortunate to have Glenn talking at our center this incoming May.
