The Truth of Bliss: No Genesis Nor Final Destination – Ep. 3
Includes an introduction to David B. Gray’s Translation of “The Cakrasamvara Tantra (The Discourse of Sri Heruka) Śrīherukābhidhāna: A Study and Annotated Translation” Published by American Institute of Buddhist Studies, dialog with trip participants and an elaboration of the Buddhist concept of Bliss and it’s connection to the Clear light of the void.
Podcast concludes with a cautionary tale about the way in which people resist the notion of infinite relativistic bliss in favor of accepted creation & destination theories and falling into a Psychotic Nirvana or what the Hindu Yoga Tradition terms Nirvikalpa Samadhi.
