with Jon Landaw
Tuesdays, 7:00pm – 9:00pm
November 26 – December 17, 2013
We are delighted that Jon Landaw, editor of the book "Introduction to Tantra", will be teaching this module on tantra! Tantra (or Vajrayana) is regarded as the most advanced Buddhist vehicle to enlightenment. In this module learn what makes it such a powerful form of practice. Get a broad overview of the four classes of tantra and be introduced to a simple meditation patterned on basic tantric methods. In addition, find out how to integrate the practices of tantra with lam-rim meditation for optimal results.
Pre-requisite: Although it would be excellent if students enrolling in this course have taken refuge in the Three Jewels, anyone with sincere interest in benefiting both themselves and others is welcome to attend.
Jon Landaw is known for his ability to present traditional Buddhist ideas in ways that are accessible and relevant for everyday life. He is also the author of "Prince Siddhartha," a biography of Buddha for children, "Images of Enlightenment," published by Snow Lion in 1993 and "Buddhism for Dummies".
