Robert Thurman: The Bodhisattva Way of Vimalakirti Upaya Zen Center's Dharma Podcast

    • Buddhism

Robert Thurman reads from his translation of The Holy Teaching of Vimalakirti,  summarizing this sutra as a text of discovering inconceivable liberation through direct realization of the interconnectedness of all beings. He reminds us that to understand this text is to understand that we are buddha, and to realize this we have to go beyond dualistic thinking.

Thurman explains that through increasing cognitive dissonance tolerance and meditation practice, we come to understand that we are beyond conceptual ideas of individuation.
