Enjoying Evolution and Defeating Death Through Buddhist Science

For everyone.

Tenzin Robert Thurman, American Buddhist practitioner, writer, and personal friend of the Dalai Lama, invites you to use rigorous science, critical thought, and focused contemplation to develop a down-to-earth practice for daily living. Learn to access the bliss of reality discovered long ago by the Buddha and verified by hundreds of generations of Buddhist adepts. Robert draws from his books, Infinite Life and The Jewel Tree of Tibet to present the magnificent spirituality of the enlightenment path, and The Brilliant Illumination of the Lamp for further instructions about the processes of life, death, and between—waking, sleeping, dreaming—and the grounding reality of bliss.

Using basic and advanced meditation and visualization practices, lectures, and dialogues, come explore the foundations and scope of the Unexcelled Yoga Tantra practice of Tibetan Buddhism.

Recommended reading Robert Thurman, The Noble Teaching of Vimalakirti (for fun); Infinite Life: Awakening the Bliss Within (for the science base and ongoing practice); The Tibetan Book of the Dead (for prep, especially the introductory study); The Jewel Tree of Tibet (for meditation); and The Brilliant Illumination of the Lamp (for advanced horizons).
