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

6:30 pm
LiveStream

“As a star, a visual aberration, a lamp, an illusion, a drop of dew, a bubble, a dream, a flash of lightning, and a cloud – see all compounded things like that.” Almost every Tibetan Buddhist practitioner encounters this concluding 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. We will look closely at the stanza and refresh our understanding and enrich our embodiment of the theme conveyed therein.
