5 Buddha Families (Part 7)

Ever wondered what the symbols in a mandala – whether in paint or sand- represent? Who are all these tantric deities and how are they related to us, if at all? The Five Buddha Families is a tantric organizing principle for understanding who we fundamentally are – a pithy, efficient schema, that points points to original wakefulness, which like colorless light when refracted, can be utilized to better understand and recognize its subtle, different nuances and qualities. Over these three Sundays, Dr. Lye will guide us through an exploration of this organizing principle, incorporating theory, practice and contemplation into these Dharma teachings.
