Free Public Talk: The Puzzle of Purification

February 21, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm UTC+0

The day before my tapping course in Cardiff, I’m giving my (by now traditional) fund-raising talk at the Samye Wales foundation on Cowbridge Road. 

These talks raise money for the centre and also give me a chance to explore a subject that’s interesting me at the  moment. (If they’re any good then they’ll appear as a podcast later…)

This February I’m looking at the subject of ‘purification’. This is a big part of Tibetan Buddhism but not really emphasised in other branches of Buddhism. 

At it’s heart is the idea that we are already Buddhas but we just don’t know it because of the crud that’s accumulated over our awareness. We don’t need to make ourselves enlightened. We just need to purify all the obscurations that get in the way. 

This sounds great but brings a whole smorgasbord of complications – philosophical, psychological and spiritual. Come along to explore in live time with me. 

Please bring generous donations (foldables preferred!) to support the centre. 

It’s free but the Cardiff team are taking bookings on Eventbrite here
