==========
The #VimalakīrtiSūtra teaches the nature of the highest truth.
It contains a quintessence of the Mahayana doctrines, as well as providing insight into views attributed to the Tantrayana.

Unlike most sutras, its central figure is not the Buddha but a wealthy householder by the name of Vimalakīrti, who, through his transcendent wisdom, expounded the doctrine of śūnyatā, or emptiness, to both arhats and bodhisattvas.

In a series of dramatic and sometimes humorous dialogues with the Buddha’s disciples, Vimalakīrti opened the Dharma-door of non-duality, which culminates in the counter-intuitive claim that nirvana and samsara, at the ultimate level, are not different.

Beloved by millions of people for thousands of years, this sutra provides canonical proof that enlightenment is possible for lay believers who remain outside monastic orders.

Khenpo Sodargye Rinpoche received the pure transmission of this sutra from lineage masters. As of March 2018, on Thursdays and Fridays, from 7:30pm to 9:30pm (Beijing Time), Rinpoche will offer an online teaching of the Vimalakīrti Sūtra to anyone who is interested.

The teaching is in Chinese with simultaneous English translation.
Live streaming can be found at www.facebook.com/Sodargye

Tutoring sessions in English, including class reviews and group discussions led by Khenpo’s monastic disciples will be offered during the weekends.
