Engaging the Senses in the Tibetan tantric “Major Practice Session” (sgrub chen)
April 27, 2016 - 17:00-19:00
Guest lecture by Cathy Cantwell, Oxford University.
It is well-known that tantric Buddhism takes a different approach towards sensual pleasures than mainstream Buddhism. While accepting the analysis of the problematic attachment and aversion resulting from indulgence in sensual gratification, the tantric spiritual discipline involves enlisting bodily experiences, and transforming ordinary body, speech and mind into their enlightened counterparts.
