Recognised and used creatively rather than reactively, imagination can be like a magical key in our spiritual lives. Having explored the way in which it is implicit in the Buddha's teaching on vision and transformation, Satyalila gives a poet's-eye view of the unfolding of the Mahayana tradition. We all have the 'seeds' of inspiration and transformation 'in' us, dormant until they are watered by the rain of the Dharma. NB This is the second recording in a series of four talks on 'Imagination, the Buddhist Tradition & Us'. The recording of the first talk in this series ('Imagination, the Buddha & Us') failed, but it's summarised at the start of each of the 3 subsequent talks. A full set of notes (with illustrations) of all the talks is available from http://bristol-buddhist-centre.org/listen-again-2017-talks-from-sangha-night/ .
