What is Tantra? Friday Night Lecture

  • Kadampa Meditation Center Texas - Dallas 1875 Laws Street Dallas, TX, 75202 United States (map)

Ever wondered what is Tantra all about? Tantra, also called Secret Mantra, is a method for bringing the future result into the present path. For example, even though we have not yet attained enlightenment, when we practice Tantra we try to prevent ordinary minds and instead visualize our self as an enlightened Deity and our surroundings as the mandala of that Deity. By meditating and practicing in this way, we can attain the pure bliss of enlightenment quickly. Join us for an engaging lecture on this special set of Buddhist teachings.



Gen Kelsang Menla has been a practicing Buddhist for 20 years, was ordained as a Kadampa Buddhist monk in 2001, and has taught Kadampa Buddhism since that time. Gen Menla has also completed temple renovation projects in Baltimore, Albuquerque and our own temple here in Dallas. He brings a warm heart and joyful attitude to sharing Buddha’s teachings and the practice of meditation.
