Spiritual power is required to make progress on the path to Enlightenment.
'The vajra represents power, spiritual power, the power, we may say, that is inherent in Reality itself'
The Symbolism of the Sacred Thunderbolt, Sangharakshita
The Vajra, also known as the diamond thunderbolt, is whatever cuts through our habitual tendencies toward defensiveness and acquisition. On this Great Gathering, through the tantric symbolism of the Vajra, we will be exploring how to uncover and direct those forces which lead to a more radical embrace of life itself.
