Public Talk "Revisiting the Concluding Stanza from the Diamond Cutter Sutra" • by Geshe Dadul Namgyal

6:30 pm
LiveStream

“As a star, a visual aberration, a lamp,/a magical illusion, a drop of dew, a bubble,/a dream, a flash of lightning, and a cloud/ -- see all compounded phenomena like that.” Almost every Tibetan Buddhist practitioner encounters this stanza from the Diamond Cutter Sutra daily either as part of their morning recitation of the Daily Three or in other sessions of contemplation over the day. In the interest of some members of Drepung Loseling Monastery, Inc. who requested a second round of explication of the metaphors, we will revisit the stanza to enrich our understanding and sustain our embodiment of the theme conveyed therein.
