CULTIVATING WISDOM AND COMPASSION IN SUTRA AND TANTRA

The Buddha’s teaching is summarised as: “Do no non-virtue whatsoever, practice virtue thoroughly, and completely tame your own mind”. So implementing compassion and wisdom must start with one’s own immediate situation.

In the Sutra system, wisdom refers to realizing emptiness, and method to the practice of the Six Paramitas, whose basis is compassion. Wisdom and method are distinct and complimentary factors. In Vajrayana, method or “skilful means” as the counterpart of wisdom, relates to the practices of Tantra, Mahamudra or Dzogchen, where wisdom and method are practiced inseparably

In Vajrayana, rather than focusing on the defects of Samsara, one recognises the inherent purity of phenomena. Understanding that mind and its manifestations are inseparable like the sun and its rays, disturbing emotions are self-liberated and transformed into corresponding aspects of wisdom.

He is humorous, gentle and humble and he transmits Buddha’s profound wisdom in an accessible way to the contemporary Westerners. Rinpoche speaks excellent English.
