Sunyata and Chandrakirti’s Sevenfold Reasoning & The Importance of Sunyata in the Hevajra Practice

Saturday, May 27 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Sakya Monastery is pleased to welcome the Vidyadhara Acharya Mahayogi Sridhar Rana Rinpoche of Nepal to give a Dharma lecture on Saturday, May 27th at 2 pm.

“Emptiness is the main view of the Paramitayana. It is considered the only antidote to ignorance, which is the innate clinging to the concept of a self as real existence. In the Vajrayana system, Emptiness is paired with Luminosity as the final view, and the Hevajra practice is intimately related to the unity of luminosity and emptiness. Without a proper understanding of what is meant by emptiness in the Mahayana system, it is considered to be dangerous. Nagarjuna says misunderstanding emptiness is like catching a snake at the wrong end! There are many authentic ways to understand the meaning of emptiness in the Mahayana; the Sevenfold Reasoning method devised by Chandrakirti is the easiest to understand.”
