Dharma Talk: The Nature of Inner Peace - Creating Sangha from Within

Posted by Sadayasihi to Triratna Young Buddhists on Sat, 7 Jul, 2018 - 14:42

Dharmabyte: Metaphors and Archetypes

Posted by Sadayasihi to Free Buddhist Audio on Thu, 5 Jul, 2018 - 12:15

This FBA Dharmabyte is called ‘Metaphors and Archetypes’ from the talk Archetypal Symbolism, Part 2 by Danadasa.

The life story of the Buddha is much more than a historical account – it is a poetic myth full of profound meanings that can resonate with both our conscious minds and our unconscious depths.

Posted by Sadayasihi to Free Buddhist Audio on Tue, 3 Jul, 2018 - 14:54

This is an excerpt from the first of four talks on the Cosmic Mythic Vision of the Mahayana.

Dharmabyte: Chittamatra (Mind Only)

Posted by Sadayasihi to Free Buddhist Audio on Thu, 28 Jun, 2018 - 14:54

This FBA Dharmabyte is called Chittamatra (‘Mind-Only’) from the talk The Depth Psychology of the Yogachara by Sangharakshita.

The Yogachara School of Indian Mahayana Buddhism and its doctrine of ‘Mind-Only’ (Chittamatra) crucially influenced the development of Zen. Here the doctrine is related to subjective and absolute idealism in Western philosophy. 

This talk was given in 1967 and is part of the series Aspects of Buddhist Psychology.
