Spiritual Friendship and the Blue Black Rite of Destruction

by Vajratara

In the last talk of the series, Vajratara introduces the Blue Rite of Destruction. Self clinging is the delusion that underlies our friendship. Facing those deep existential pulls of fear, death, aloneness and inter-relationship within friendship is facing conditioned existence itself. With the samgrahavastu (means of unification) of samanarthata, exemplification or treating others like ourselves, we can create an environment of deep exploration. In the end this leaves us in the great silence. This talk was given on a joint Tiratanaloka and Buddhafield retreat for women training for ordination in the Triratna Buddhist Order.

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