Kamalashila and Meditation


This teaching by Trungram Gyalwa Rinpoche introduces Kamalashila and the Samye Debate of the 8th Century between the advocates of gradual and sudden enlightenment.

The madhyamaka concept of emptiness, as well as samsara and prajñāpāramitā are discussed. This teaching provides some historical context for gradual and sudden enlightenment meditation schools and their methods in a clear and logical narrative.
