On March 1st, A New Module of Vajrayana Training Online with Pema Khandro will begin.
Vajrayana Training is an online study course focused on understanding the symbols, rituals, philosophy and practices of Tibetan Buddhism.
The power of our current age is an unprecedented access to books, videos, empowerments and meditation retreats from many Eastern traditions. However, this can often lead to a patch work of contradictory experiences that don’t necessarily make sense, nor lead to greater depth. The Vajrayana Training provides a systematic, in-depth look at Buddhist thought and practice in order to place these teachings in their greater context.
In the past such training could only be accessed by learning a foreign language, living in Asia and living in monastery for many years. This has made deeper training accessible to only a few. This training is offered online order to share the wealth of wisdom of Buddhist philosophy and practice with sincere students who have dynamic, full lives. By training from home in an online format, there is a great potential for ongoing study and integration of these teachings in one’s family, work and society.
