July 24th, 2020 marks the anniversary of the Buddha’s first turning of the Wheel of Dharma in the Deer Park of Sarnath near Varanasi in India, according to the Tibetan lunar calendar. To mark this sacred day, Sakya Monastery is delighted to make H.E Avikrita Vajra Rinpoche’s new book The Way of Invincible Love exclusively available as a digital download through our website.
The PDF eBook is freely offered but donations are encouraged to support the Marici Fellowship’s ongoing activities to benefit those in need during this time.
Based on teachings first given in early 2018 in Taipei and Seattle, in The Way of Invincible Love, H.E. Avikrita Vajra Rinpoche draws on the example of the future Buddha Maitreya, embodiment of enlightened loving kindness, and the words of his “Majestic Aspiration” to explore the key features of the Mahayana path to full enlightenment.
The book includes a translation of “The Majestic Aspiration of Maitreya” with a comprehensive look at its background, its meaning, and a detailed exploration of how the qualities of enlightened activity are evoked in the practice of Tibetan Buddhism.
