Lesson 2: Lines of Experience

Gelek Rimpoche begins this lesson with more intimate stories about the immediate lineage and some of his personal experiences having received this teaching 30 times. He elaborates on the lineage prayer by examining in detail key Tibetan phrases. He touches on the extraordinary qualities of a Buddha body. Finally he closes with a discussion of the opening verse stressing the difference between the perceiving reality as it is and perceiving directly what it is. For Buddhas there is no separation while we experience unavoidable distortions.
