July 20th, 2009

Episode 109 of 409 episodes

His Holiness answers in English audience questions about post-death clear light meditation, the impermanence of an inexhaustible enlightened continuum, and Buddhaâs compassion for extremely negative perpetrators of abusive exploitation and their traumatized victims. Then in Tibetan, he continues his commentary on Je Tsongkhapaâs Lam Rim text with an overview of Buddhaâs teachings and refers repeatedly to the Heart of the Perfection of Wisdom (Prajnaparamita) Sutraâs mantra and view that all phenomena do not exist objectively yet do exist subjectively. In English, His Holiness outlines the history of Buddhismâs transmission throughout Asia. He particularly focuses on the importance of two Indian scholar/saints for Tibetan Buddhism: Shantarakshita, who established Buddhismâs solid foundation, and Dipamkara Atisha, who initiated the Tibetan Lam Rim literary/teaching genre which serves as a comprehensive travel guide for the journey to enlightenment.
