Invited Teacher Series "Appreciation of the Feminine Principle in Tibetan Buddhism" Myoshin Kelley
On the ultimate level, the teachings that are offered in the Buddhist tradition help us to transcend gender identities beyond the restriction of the conceptual mind. On the relative level, having role models and understanding the attributes of feminine and masculine qualities, help us to embrace the totality of our lives. It enables us to consciously bring all challenges and abilities to the path of awakening.
During this evening we will explore the The Feminine Principle which is equated with wisdom. It is called the Mother of all Buddha’s because it is the fundamental space that is unconditioned and can not be labeled. Because of its elusive nature, it is harder to recognize and appreciate than the masculine principle. In order to help us to recognize these qualities we will look at aspects of Tibetan Buddhist teachings that empower the fruition of the feminine through deities, historical women and getting in touch with our own inner wisdom.
