This session will focus on the five Dhyani Buddhas (also known as the five Tathagata Buddha Families): Ratnasambhava, Akshobya, Vairocana, and Amitabha, and Amoghasiddhi. We will learn about the five Dhyani Buddhas’ attributes, associations, and what they represent. We will also learn about their pledges. The class will include a short meditation on the mandala of the five Dhyani Buddhas and will help you to better understand who they are and their importance in our meditations.
