Spiritual Friendship and the Red Rite of Fascination

by Karunadhi (2019)

In the third talk of the series, Karunadhi introduces the Red Rite of Fascination. Friendship emerges from love for our friends, but also can evoke strong attachment. Karunadhi talks about how she has worked with these forces in her relationship with her own preceptor. Communication and the samgrahavastu (means of unification) of loving speech are the antidote for grasping and projection. This talk was given on a joint Tiratanaloka and Buddhafield retreat for women training for ordination in the Triratna Buddhist Order. The other talks are by Vajratara.

This talk is part of the series Spiritual Friendship and the Tantric Rites.
