The Mandala of the Five Buddhas - Talk 10 - Amoghasiddhi and Harmonious Action

by Ratnaprabha (2013)

Tenth talk of Padmaloka's 2012 Winter Retreat. Amoghasiddhi is the Buddha of action and also spiritual rebirth, he shows us the possibility of really making a difference in this world. But that doesn't need to be showy, small acts can have big consequences and in fact the wisdom of Amoghasiddhi is said to be subtle and without gross effort. We just need to have the courage to act ourselves.

The double vajra is Amoghasiddhi's symbol, it balances opposites and the releases the energy that can allow for those subtle actions.

This talk is part of the series The Mandala of the Five Buddhas.
