TEACHINGS ON THE JOURNEY OF BUDDHIST PRACTICE
Dr. Reggie Ray
The Buddhist tradition acknowledges that there are three distinctive approaches to the spiritual path called yanas or “vehicles.” In these six talks, given between 2004 and 2006, Reggie explains the view and practices of the Hinayana, Mahayana, and Vajrayana in detail and then goes on to describe what he calls the “Fourth Yana,” delivered by the great Tibetan Vajra Master Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche as the Shambhala teachings. Reggie shows us how the Fourth Yana represents complete freedom from the reference points of traditional teachings and forms. In essence, The Fourth Yana is the spontaneous expression of our basic human awakening that is both uniquely personal and wonderfully creative.
