Contemplating the Refuge Tree 2: Absorbtion In the Blue Sky

by Vajratara (2022)

In the second part of a series of talks about the 'Going for Refuge and Prostration Practice of the Buddha Shakyamuni', Vajratara introduces the blue sky. The qualities of the blue sky include joy and serenity, vibrancy and peace. Absorption in the blue sky takes us from 'suchness' and 'illumination' to the crystallisation of love and awareness into the seed of the Refuge Tree itself. Followed by question and answers.

This is one of a series of informal talks given at a retreat for those training for ordination: a collaboration between Buddhafield and Tiratanaloka. It took place in a marquee. Some of the questions are inaudible, but Vajratara repeats the basic points.
