Descend with the View, Ascend with the Conduct

by Vajrapriya (2009)

A talk given in the buildup to Padmasambhava Day, to explore this crucial aphorism and approach of Padmasambhava, given in the title.

Vajrapriya makes the link between this saying, and Sangharakshita's explanation of the Noble Eightfold Path as a path of Vision and Transformation; talks about what it means to ascend with the view; and to descend with the conduct; and explores the signs that we're not keeping these two directions of practice in balance.
