The Deer Hunter

by Padmavajra (2007)

The final talk in the eight-part series entitled The Crazy Wisdom of the Mahasiddhas.

The central issue of the Dharma life, as Sangharakshita articulates, is to develop emotional equivalents to our intellectual understanding. Here Padmavajra uses the stories of Maitrigupta and the De Niro film The Deer Hunter to symbolically point towards the level of wisdom that goes beyond concept. We complete this scintillating series at the place where the path ends and the forest begins.

This talk is part of the series Crazy Wisdom of the Mahasiddhas.
