A new podcast from some members of the Adhisthana Kula as they come to the end of a 10-day meeting of the College of Public Preceptors - the body responsible for maintaining the integrity and spirit of the Triratna Buddhist Order.
A great little summary of some of the more general issues discussed, including those arising from historical controversies. We get a little taster of other conversations to come - with news of new media, and of prospective reconciliation possibilities within the wider community.
What emerges is a picture of the College at a crucial moment, holding complexity as Dharma practitioners individually and together. Significantly, we hear a moving account of some of their own experience of ‘Insight’ in the context of walking a Buddhist path; one where we can both be clear about our history while also striving for the ideal of the Bodhisattva, who works to relieves suffering in the world.
Recorded at Adhisthana, March 2017.
