With the Venerable Thupten Phuntsok in the pulpit
Dharmadhatu is a Sanskrit term meaning "realm of Truth." It refers to the consciousness of the purified mind when it is returned to its natural state and is free from obscurities. It is the essence of the mind and is an important concept in Buddhism, with links to yogic philosophy as well.
Educated in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, meditation teacher Venerable Thupten Phuntsok will speak of the ultimate reality of everything - the dharmadhatu - and lead us in a brief meditation. Please join us for this unique opportunity.
