Recorded Lectures: The Three Samadhis and the Four Binding Forces

Instructions on Sadhana Practice from the Nyingma Tradition

With the Dorje Loppon Lodro Dorje

Course Content: We will follow the exposition by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche in Pure Appearance: Development and Completion Stages in Vajrayana Practice. The four binding forces are the force of appearances as the deity; the force of mantra and prana; the unchanging view; and application of activities. The discussion will be enriched by references from the Vidyadhara.

Pure Appearance is a compendium of talks by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche in Boulder, Colorado, in June 1987. Available from the Nalanda Translation Committee.
