FBA Podcast: The Cremation Ground

By Zac on Sat, 1 Oct, 2022 - 06:00

Vidyasakhi vividly draws us into the magical world of the Eight Cremation Grounds where Padmasambhava tamed demons and engaged in his Bodhisattva training. Vidyasakhi is a musician and Padmasambhava practitioner with a background in storytelling. She has used these skills to dramatise The Life and Liberation of Padmasambhava and is a very good guide into the symbolism of this sacred space.

This talk was given at the Cambridge Buddhist Centre, 2017.

In this introduction to Padmasambhava, Vidyadaka guides us through the symbolism of Padmasambhava’s appearance on a lotus, in the centre of Lake Dhanakosa. We hear about the qualities of the lake, the land of Uddiyana, King Indrabhuti’s plight and uncover their deeper meanings and relevance to our own life. Vidyadaka also describes Padmasambhava, his own initial discovery of him and Bhante’s first glimpse of the Great Guru in Darjeeling.
