Tantra in Sukhavati

Post by MatthewAngby » Mon Feb 05, 2018 3:32 am

Is it possible to pratice Tantra in sukhavati? If so, why bother to pratice in this life ? If not , why does TB has prayers to be reborn there ?

Because in TB, we don't take it as a given that one is automatically reborn in Sukhavati in the next life.

Also once in Sukhavati you can travel across all Buddhafields so you can learn tantra even if it is not taught there, maybe you can travel to Zangdog Palri.

Maybe kriya & charya. I doubt you could practice HYT in Sukhavati since you would need the red and white essences from your mother and father respectively. But who knows, maybe there are methods for those miraculously-born beings that work as expediently as HYT does for those born from womb.
