Song of Enlightenment: Jankya Rolway Dorje – Ep. 213
Robert A.F. Thurman leads a close line translation of Jankya Rolway Dorje’s poem “Recognition of Mother Voidness” introducing the Buddhist tradition of enlightenment songs and visionary poetics.
Using D.W. Winnocott‘s concept of “good enough mother” Professor Thurman gives a teaching on the radical nature of the Buddha’s teachings and how their insights can provide those of any tradition valuable tools to transform their lives, relationships and the world around them.
This podcast includes: a short biography of the 18th Century teacher to the Qianlong Emperor of China, an introduction to Buddhist emptiness, a discussion of “Big Brothers” in Asian cultures, an overview of the Buddha’s discovery of relativity and how the blissful nature of that discovery informs the poetry of enlightened masters of India and Tibet
