As a special treat for you all this week as we countdown to #buddhaday we will be releasing a series of dharma reflections each day…⠀
Here, Maitreyabandhu reads us a poem from his second collection called Yarn.
According to tradition, two travellers met the Buddha just after his enlightenment and became his first disciples, Tapussa and Bhallika. They disappear from literature after that point, and the Travellers from Orissa is a long dramatic monologue, written by Maitreyabandhu, imagining their story.
Make some space and sit comfortably to spend 20 minutes listening to Maitreyabandhu spinning this yarn…
To see all our Buddha Day Dharma resources as they’re released, and for the full programme – thebuddhistcentre.com/buddha-day⠀
