Let Your Poison Be Your Cure

Posted by Free Buddhist Audio to Bristol Buddhist Centre on Thu, 8 Jun, 2017 - 00:00
"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.

Imagination, the Buddha and Us

Posted by Free Buddhist Audio to Bristol Buddhist Centre on Thu, 8 Jun, 2017 - 00:00
Satyalila gave this talk to the Hastings Sangha in April 2017. It's a 're-giving' of the first talk from the series she did in Bristol in January in 2017, entitled 'Imagination, the Buddhist tradition and us'. [The original recording failed.] It offers a practical and personal perspective on why Sangharakshita has taught that imagination is a vital ingredient in the spiritual life. Full of examples and poetry, the talk invites listeners to recognise - and harness - the great power of the imagination which is in all of us, whether or not we're aware of it.

This talk was given on an Open Introduction to Buddhism long weekend given at Taraloka in April. Dhammagita talks about how our modern, post-truth, echo-chambered world mirrors our internal world, and how the dharma reveals and deals with our own fake facts.
