In our last November share, we were given a surprise bag of...

Dharmabyte: Seated Upon the Vulture's Peak

By Sadayasihi on Thu, 12 Dec, 2019 - 14:00

Sangharakshita takes us to the Vulture’s Peak, the summit of earthly existence, where the Buddha begins the White Lotus Sutra by speaking on infinity. With his words, (and the forthcoming myths, symbols and parables of the sutra), we are entreated to go beyond into the purely spiritual world of the transcendental.

From the talk The Drama of Cosmic Enlightenment, 1971, part of the series Parables, Myths and Symbols of Mahayana Buddhism in the White Lotus Sutra.
