Establishing Appearances as Divine

Following Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche’s request, Heidi Koppl will reflect and lead us in discussion on the reasons why, according to the Vajrayana, all appearances are seen to be pure and divine. We will take a close look at the 11th century Nyingma master Rongzom’s treatise on this topic. We will reflect on questions such as whether appearances are timelessly pure, or if they only become pure through transformation. Likewise, we will ponder the benefits of pure perception–the most crucial mind state of the Vajrayana. Best if you have some degree of experience with the Vajrayana for participation. The sessions will be rich and interactive, with time for questions, reflection, and conversation.
