The Five Buddha Families

6 Thursday evenings: March 23 – April 27, 7:00-8:30pm

The Five Buddha Families represent the awakened energies of a Buddha, which lie dormant for most people.  All living beings are informed by these wisdom energies yet they are not recognized. They are inherent to who we are and they are the potential that eventually manifests as our Buddha nature. But for most of us they are obscured by disturbing emotions like anger, pride, desire, jealousy and ignorance.

The Buddhist tantric path is a process of familiarizing ourselves with these awakened energies, lessening and purifying our obscurations and allowing the unhindered wisdom energy to shine forth.  In this class, through meditation, teaching and discussion, Stephen Gross will introduce us to the Five Buddha Families and the methods involved in transforming the energies.

This class is available through live and recorded video and audio.

Location: Sukhasiddhi Center, Fairfax CA.

stephengrossStephen Gross met and took refuge with the previous Kalu Rinpoche in the mid-1980s. This seeded his interest in Vajrayana and eventually led him to study with Lama Palden and to complete both the Bodhi and Shangpa lineage practice programs. Fascinated with the human psyche, he attained his Master’s in Psychology and practiced as a licensed psychotherapist for 17 years. He has taught a course in “Buddhism and Psychology” at JFK University. Now, using his humor and love of the Dharma, Stephen teaches classes at Sukhasiddhi on both Buddhist philosophy and practice.
