“Life, a 4D Video Game” presents the traditional Buddhist teachings of emptiness and the path to enlightenment using video games as a metaphor for our life. In this class, you will learn:
• The rules of the game
• What you can do right now to have a happier life and less suffering
• How to get “happiness points” and merit
• How we get “suffering points” and what we need to do right now to avoid the
sufferings of the lower realms
• How to get to the next level and pass to a Pure Land and achieve Enlightenment
• How to “win”
Most Tibetan Buddhist texts on the subject of emptiness and the illusionary nature of reality are difficult reads or esoteric. This class simplifies many of the teachings we recite during our Sunday Chenrezi meditation in a way that is understandable, practical, and, more importantly, actionable. Because our lives are very visual, the class will be given as a lavishly illustrated color PowerPoint presentation.
