Of the Mysteries of Spiritual Friendship and the Three Tantric Refuges

a series of talks by Padmasagara

Why did the Buddha describe spiritual friendship as 'the whole of the spiritual life'? Taking this question as his starting point, Padmasagara explores the significance, depth and mystery of spiritual friendship, using the Three Tantric Refuges - the Guru, Yidam and Dakini - as a framework to explore its vertical, imaginal and horizontal dimensions.

The series of talks was given at Padmaloka in January 2022 on a Going for Refuge retreat for men who've asked for ordination.
