In today’s FBA Podcast, “Learning from Tibetan Buddhism – A Personal Account” Vessantara shares from his many years of engagement with Tibetan Buddhist approaches to meditation and general Buddhist practice. He carefully weighs up the different aspects of exploring a tradition outside of your own, and evokes Tibetan Buddhism itself through the story of his initiation into the Vajrayogini sadhana. A lovely, thoughtful talk that pays tribute to the effect of one ancient form of Dharma in a modern practitioner’s own life. There is also a thorough discussion of visualization meditation, and a moving celebration of the teachers who have helped him on the path.
