"Let your poison be your cure" is a talk by Satyalila from the Bristol Sangha Retreat at Adhisthana in May 2017. The title is a reference from a poem by Louis MacNiece, Thalassa. The talk is a clear and practical guide to how our spiritual journey can consist in transforming the 'poisons' (greed, hatred, delusion, pride and envy) with (and ultimately into) the five spiritual faculties (faith, wisdom, mindfulness, samadhi and energy-in-pursuit-of-the-good). It concludes with a look at how the five Buddha mandala offers an imaginative representation of the faculties as qualities of the Buddha's Enlightened mind.
