Dharma Talk on Kālachakra Tantra and Meditation in the Mantra of Compassion 時輪密法公開講座與大悲咒禪修

Among all Unexcelled Yoga Tantras, the Kalacakra tantric tradition brings unique perspectives on the nonduality of cosmos, society, and an individual. It integrates diverse fields of Buddhist knowledge into its theory and practice. Like other tantras if it class, it also integrates the system of Perfections as taught in the Perfection of Wisdom Sutras with an esoteric tantric system. This lecture will discuss the uniqueness of the Kalacakratantra’s cosmology, perspectives on the concept of cosmological and personal time as manifesting in a human body. 於無上瑜伽續中,時輪密法修習與理論揉合多維向佛法知識,獨一無二指出個人、社會與宇宙之不二性,並將密法與《般若經典》中「般羅密」思想揉合。本講將討論時輪密法獨特性,與其身體體現的宇宙及個人時間觀念。
