Jan 14, 2016

Free Buddhist AudioHaving now entered the mandala, in todayand#8217;s FBA Dharmabyte we meet Akshobya: The Dark Blue Buddha. From the talk The Mandala: Tantric Symbol of Integration by Sangharakshita, 1967.

The Tantras (special scriptures of Vajrayana Buddhism) frequently refer to mandalas, circles of symbolic forms. Sangharakshita describes the mandala of the five Buddhas, its use as a symbol of psychological and spiritual integration, and the meaning of its sexual symbolism.

This talk is part of the series Aspects of Buddhist Psychology.
