Meditations on the
Diamond Cutter Sutra

May 2018
During the last two years, Venerable Chunzom has taught upon
the great ideas of the Diamond Cutter Sutra.  We’ve used the
ancient Indian commentary of Master Kamalashila, with secrets
that haven’t been explored for over a thousand years. 

In the final teaching of this series, the Buddha answers
five mysterious questions from his student, Subhuti:
1) How do I build a Buddha paradise?
2) Is the Diamond Cutter a book, or an idea?
3) How can you write if the pen never touches the paper?
4) How did I help make the Buddha get enlightened, 
before I even met him?
5) Should I say I know, when I do, or say I don’t?

Somewhere in the answers to these questions is the key
to getting everything we want in our life. We’ll explore
the inside of our minds in meditations on these questions.

Dance of the Lion

Fall 2017 - Winter 2018
In "The Dance of the Lion" meditations, we travel through different
states of mind. Discover how the mind operates in the desire realm
where we now live, and move it to the form and formless realms.
 
Why do this? To realize how everything we ever see is popping out of
mental seeds that are planted when we are nice, or not nice, to
someone else! The Lion’s Dance meditations examine the subtle part
of our world our senses aren't normally tuned fine enough to experience.
Gain the mental quiet to put your mind into different states at will
– this is the dance to see emptiness directly.

that flow of creativity and keep it going. Bring in your creative obstacles and

Dream of a Midsummer Night

August 2015 - NYC
Come explore insights and meditations on emptiness, and have fun
searching for the thing that is not there. Experience meditations that are
focused upon the truth of “emptiness:” the fact that there is nothing in our lives
which is not coming from how we treat others around us. Using logical reasoning,
explore the play of illusion we project onto the blank screen of our lives
and learn how to awaken from the dream of misperceptions we live by.
Once we see that the way things truly work in the world is completely
different than what we have always thought, we can
realize new possibilities for happiness!
