What is known today as buddhism is a vast range of teachings from different perspectives, various vehicles and transmitted through the lens of a wide variety of cultures. At first the contemplative renunciate life of a monk in a temple in Burma contrasted to a drumming Himalayan tantric yogi wearing bone ornaments in the burial grounds appear to be full of contradictions. How can all these practices be buddhist? While it is taught that there are 84,000 dharma gates with enough teachings to suit the minds of all type of sentient beings, it can be challenging to see the common thread running through them all. Some people see only the original Pali teachings at what the buddhist taught, while others focus on Amitabha Pureland and still others focuses on the diamond vehicle of Vajrayana. Is Buddhism a philosophy, a religion or a science, all of the above, none of the above?
In this talk Khentrul Rinpoche will illuminate the non-contradictory nature of what the buddha taught and explain the common thread that binds all these teachings fit together.
