Padma Sambhava, Avalokitesvara and Tulku Akong Rinpoche
This class presents a broad overview of Buddhism as it has developed over the centuries in different countries in Asia since the time of the historical Gautama Buddha. A unique feature of this development is that is has been evolving or unfolding to higher, more complete and more self-aware levels as it has progressed through the past 2,600 years. This is an example of the potential for the evolution of spirituality in all sentient life and is manifest in Buddhism through what is called the Three Great Turnings of the Wheel of Dharma or Hinayana, Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism. Each turning of the wheel brought Buddhist thought and practice into higher, more profound levels of understanding of the nature of the individual and the universe. These deepening cycles are also part of our own unfolding spiritual lives, even if we are not Buddhist, as they outline a course of spiritual maturity and realization available to all of us: to recognize the ‘always/already’, perfect, luminous and enlightened nature of our being in spirit and to aspire to attain the wisdom mind and compassionate heart of the Buddha.
