Satyalila gives us 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.

Excerpted from the talk entitled Let Your Poison Be Your Cure given at the Bristol Sangha Retreat at Adhisthana, 2017. The title is a reference from a poem by Louis MacNiece, Thalassa.
