Wearing the Body of Visions
This weekend explores the rich and dramatic symbolism of inner Tantra, through practices of vision, yogic song, chant, mudra, and Tantric music. The weekend includes a slide presentation of rare Tantric paintings, rites, and symbolic dances. The Lamas explain the meaning of symbolism in such a way as to unlock a field of language. Symbolism may be mysterious in the way it conveys what it conveys – but it is a language which can be learnt and a tool with which we can come to understand the intrinsic beauty of all beings. The peaceful, joyous, and wrathful awareness-beings (yidams, or meditational deities) are the key to both to personal dignity and to perceiving the dignity of others. These three categories cover every human body type – and in so doing, release us from the bondage of societal sanction with regard to how we appear.
