The Mandala of the Five Buddhas - Talk 11 - Sitting At the Centre of the Mandala

by Vessantara (2013)

Eleventh and last talk of Padmaloka's 2012 Winter Retreat. Once again at the Centre of the Mandala, Vairocana, how do we balance the teachings of effort and openness. One way is through the image of the Sun and relaxed being, the practice of the Dharma is simply to come back. Yet of course this requires effort.

Another question is the balance between practical and mythical approaches : can we hold both at once? What do we give significance to ? what do we make real ? can we open to a world of richer and deeper meaning ?

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