Here are two of the mantras from this final puja: firstly, an energetic version, with drums and harmony, and then concluding with the ‘longing’ Padmasambhava mantra as the evening drew to a close…

Transforming Self - Ratnaguna (VIDEO)

Tue, 27 Aug, 2019 - 11:25

A wonderful first talk of the 2019 International Gathering, whose theme is ‘Alchemy of the Dharma’. The utterly delightful Ratnaguna takes us through the true miracle of transforming ourselves via the magic of a practice in which we also learn to let ourselves change. 

This is a beautiful, reflective, funny take on the challenges of the Dharma life. Ratnaguna’s breadth of reference is itself a joy: taking in Greek philosophy, Hans Christian Andersen, and writings on the nearness of death to life...
