When: Tuesdays, 7:00 – 8:30 pm ET

We are currently reading Lama Yeshe’s ‘Introduction to Tantra’ and ‘When the Chocolate Runs Out’ in our Literature Circle. Everyone is welcome.

Lama Yeshe and his student Lama Zopa Rinpoche have played a crucial role in introducing Tibetan Buddhism to the modern world and founded the FPMT in the process. Lama was able to do this because he could communicate deep truths in a down-to-earth, humorous, clear, and direct way.

‘Introduction to Tantra’: What is tantra? Who is qualified to practice it, and how does one become qualified? How is tantra practiced? What are the expected outcomes and are they different from sutra? The tantric teachings of Buddhism provide remarkably skilled methods of transformation that can be realized very quickly through utilizing all aspects of our human energy. Lama Yeshe presents tantra as a practice leading to self-discovery and satisfaction. He shares this vision of reality and these skillful methods, which are of immense significance for realizing our potential, in a simple and clear way. Introduction to Tantra – The Wisdom Experience

‘When the Chocolate Runs Out’: With playful wisdom and heart-striking compassion this beautiful little book captures the essence of the teachings of Lama Yeshe.  How can we be happy even after the “chocolate” has run out? By cutting the cords of attachment, we discover the indestructible happiness that has always been—and always will be—available to us. When the Chocolate Runs Out – The Wisdom Experience
