Samaya Part Three

This week, continuing our study from the commentary on the Dakinis Heart Essence, Rinpoche concludes the passage on Samaya. From the Tantric perspective the vows are understood as boundaries or protectors of the mind, helping to guard us against the mental afflictions and to maintain the fruits of Empowerments. This Tantric rhetoric is then juxtaposed with the Dzogchen perspective, and what it would mean to live beyond boundaries.
