The Twelve Examples of Illusion: profound supports to realize awakeness

June 12, 2021 @ 11:30 am June 13, 2021 @ 11:30 am

A Weekend of Zoom Teachings on Saturday & Sunday, June 12-13, 2021 @ 11:30 am PST

Lama Mark Webber will continue to give teachings and meditation practices based on the classic twelve examples of illusion from the Mahayana and Theravadin traditions; e.g., bubbles, rainbows, echos, lightning and mirror. Contemplation on these examples allows an easier access to meditating on emptiness. Through traditional Asian examples, western science, pithy instructions and contemplations, Lama Webber shows that all of our perception and experience is illusory. To not know the extent of fabrication in all that we experience is a primary source of suffering. Insight into illusory phenomena, called completion stage with support, leads to a great wakefulness.Text Used:Twelve Examples of Illusion, Jan Westerhoff, Oxford, 2010.
