"Making Room for the Wrathful Mother"
with Lama Justin von Bujdoss
In this talk, Lama Justin introduces Palden Lhamo from the Karma Kagyu Lineage and Tröma Nagmo from the Zhije Lineage. These forms of the wrathful mother show up for us in countless ways if we can hold a relationship to the wrathful mother which is devotional and intimate. Sometimes this requires us to let go of intellectual grasping and ideas around knowing what we are doing and letting go and simply being which can be uncomfortable and unsettling. Join us as we explore embracing chaos in order to begin to inhabit a place of increased embodiment and authenticity in relationship to these wrathful female Buddhas.
Lama Justin von Bujdoss is an American vajrayana Buddhist teacher, writer, and the is a co-founder of Bhumisparsha an experimental Buddhist sangha along with Lama Rod Owens.
