Tantric Buddhism is a pathway to Enlightenment. In Tantra we do not avoid the world. We embrace it. We believe that God exists in everything. We focus on the clear light of reality in and through all experiences.
“The path that is followed by most persons in the beginning of their spiritual search is the path of love. Love is the easiest and most effective way to begin our search for self-realization, for ourselves. Love is the highest of all qualities that we can experience….
“Naturally there are different forms of love, different expressions of love. We can really say that the gradation of love is determined by to whom that love is directed…. In the most advanced state of love, we don't love for any reason or any purpose; we don't even direct our love necessarily to an object. We just love for the sake of love. Love is beginningless and endless ecstasy. It's an unfathomable mystery. It is the study of our lives.” Rama – Dr. Frederick Lenz
As a woman, do you feel like you have been playing a role based on what society thinks women should be? As a man, do you feel you are limited by the world's description of masculinity?
The Caretaker Personality is a way of dealing with the world. As you meditate, you come to realize that you don't have one personality, you have many different selves inside you. You can choose which one to use in any situation, like choosing clothing that’s appropriate to an occasion. Two in particular -- The Child and The Warrior -- are of great value to the spiritual aspirant.
