In this class Rinpoche concludes the study of the passage from page 6 of our text, explaining the meaning and importance of the Nine Vehicles. The Nine Vehicles from the perspective of the Nyingma tradition are a means of organizing and understanding the diversity of Buddhist thought and methods into various categories. Khandro La details how each vehicle offers different vantage points in which a practitioner can relate to and understand reality and the Sacred, in particular focusing on the Outer and Inner Tantra’s as well as the 3 main classes of Dzogchen (Semde, Longde & Mengak de).
