Key Features

Prajñaparamita is one of the key philosophies and practices of the Mahayana teachings of Buddhism. In this course, Lama Tsultrim addresses the fascinating history of the deity Prajñaparamita, also known as the Great Mother. The meditation practice helps one connect with and embody the deep wisdom that she represents. This practice is also a primary ‘open awareness’ meditation that is regularly practiced outdoors at Tara Mandala while gazing at the vast, open sky. This course is open to anyone.

What Will I Learn?

  • Understand the historical origins and profound meaning of the Prajñaparamita (Perfection of Wisdom) philosophy.
  • Receive the complete explanation of Lama Tsultrim’s Prajñaparamita deity practice, and learn how to do the practice.
  • Receive a live transmission of the Prajñaparamita practice.
