Thongdrol

Thongdrol, a podcast by DusumKhyenpa.orgThongdrol is a Tibetan word that means liberation through seeing. On a basic level, it can be anything that turns the person to look towards the spiritual path. Thongdrol strives to be a bridge connecting interested people to the precious teachings of the Buddha, on training our mind towards the ultimate realisation of the true existence of life. Of the impermanence and empty nature of the things and moments that surround us. The precious teachers are an inspiration and their teachings are an aspiration worth seeking.

Sherab Nyingpo Ep 7 - Heart Sutra by Khenpo Karma Tseten - 7

The Heart Sutra(བཅོམ་ལྡན་འདས་མ་ཤེས་རབ་ཀྱི་ཕ་རོལ་ཏུ་ཕྱིན་པའི་སྙིང་པོ) is the most widely known sutra of the Mahayana tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. It is part of the Prajnaparamita Sutras, which is a collection of about 40 sutras composed between 100 BCE and 500 CE. The Heart Sutra is a presentation of profound wisdom on the nature of emptiness. The Sutra famously states, "Form is emptiness (śūnyatā), emptiness is form." It is a condensed exposé on the Buddhist Mahayana teaching of the Two Truths doctrine, which says that ultimately all phenomena are sunyata, empty of an unchanging essence. This emptiness is a 'characteristic' of all phenomena, and not a transcendent reality, but also "empty" of essence of its own. Specifically, it is a response to Sarvastivada's teachings that "phenomena" or its constituents are real. It has been called "the most frequently used and recited text in the entire Mahayana Buddhist tradition." The text has been translated into English dozens of times from Chinese, Sanskrit, and Tibetan as well as other source languages. Khenpo Karma Tseten is a scholar and a dharma teacher based in Rumtek Shedra, Sikkim
