Buddhism

"Buddhism is the enlightenment cycle -- and there are different types of it. Principally there is short path and long path Buddhism. The long path is more of the religious aspect, that is to say, the church aspect: the practice of reading sutras, healthy ways of living, a certain amount of prayer, a little meditation. The esoteric aspect of Buddhism, which is short path Buddhism, is meditation." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz

The Best Meditation I Ever Had

In advanced meditation we are trying to undo the most perfect perceptual states because we realize they are still limited. In advanced practice, we come back to all those things we set aside in earlier religious/spiritual practices - careers, relationships, etc. - to experience/see/know that God exist in all things.

Tantric Buddhism

This is a book of 27 transcripts recorded by Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz from 1989 to 1990. In these diverse talks, Rama draws from classical Tibetan Buddhism and numerous aspects of American culture to create a current version of Tantric Buddhism that is as solidly grounded in ancient practice as it is fully engaged in modern life.

 

The Enlightenment Cycle

The Enlightenment Cycle talks, recorded by Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz in 1992, are must-have coursework for students of American Buddhism. This book of twelve transcribed talks is a summation, a compressing of knowledge that contains an vast body of information. While each talk covers many subjects, within each discourse is a potent kernel of wisdom that grows upon each reading.

Professional Meditation

A professional in meditation is someone who is able, no matter what the state of their mind or life, to sit down, meditate, stop thought and enter the quiescent state. But realize that no matter how high you go, no matter how deeply you perceive, you are only touching the bare surface of infinity.

The Nexus of all Pathways

In self-discovery we seek to go beyond the limited self and experience the clear light of reality. You do not need to know who or what you want to become. You simply need to dissolve. The clear light will take care of the rest.

Self-Effort

Enlightenment is achieved through a great deal of self-effort. You must go through every step of the self-discovery process. You must win the ecstasy; you must win the freedom, through your self-effort.

Enlightenment

This talk transmits the feeling of enlightenment or the timeless void, nirvana, ecstasy. God is in all things. You are God, and once you accept that with humility, you can transform.

The Natural State

In Buddhism we call Enlightenment the natural state. But with billions of human beings on Earth thinking and acting, it is difficult for us to even quiet our mind. We are all incarnate Buddhas and we seek our own innocence. Find out how we can become more aware of our true nature and reside in the natural state.

Six Worlds

There is more than just this world and heaven and hell. In Buddhist cosmology we realize there are many worlds and that these worlds really exist inside our own mind. Everything exists within our own mind. How we navigate through these worlds and what the path is that leads beyond all worlds this talk addresses.
