Surrendering to a Greater Beauty: the Yidam As the Gateway to the Pure Realm

by Vajratara (2019)

Through the story of the Prince who left the palace and followed the devas who sang to him of beauty, Vajratara explores ‘Green Tara and the Fourth Laksana’, one of Sangharakshita’s last writings. What is beauty? What does it mean to love beauty, not just to contemplate it? How do we follow the path of beauty? This talk was given at the December 2019 Women’s Order Weekend at Adhisthana and makes particular reference to the path of beauty in relation to Sadhana practices taken up at ordination. These involve visualising a yidam, or Buddha or Bodhisattva figure.
