Tantric Teachings and Empowerments
Tantric Budhhism is also called the resultant vehicle, as distinguished from Mahayana Buddhism, which is the causal vehicle. The causal vehicle cultivates the causes of enlightenment, unselfish compassion and the practice of the six perfections. Tantra, the resultant vehicle, is based on the fact that all beings already posess buddha nature and utilizes meditation practices where one visualizes oneself as a buddha. The meditator with firm faith in their inherent buddha nature and devotion to their teacher can make swifter progress with the Tantric teachings than on the Mahayana path.
