Dharmabyte: Kalyana MitrataOn Mon, 9 November, 2020 - 06:00
How do we go beyond the duality of subject and object, self and other, to experience the true nature of reality?
There is no real Buddhism if it’s all about self liberation. We have to see other people as like ourselves. Jnanavaca, telling the story of Meghiya, unequivocally draws out the importance of sangha and kalyana mitrata as the means to bring the Dharma to life in the world.
Excerpted from the talk What is Sangha & Kalyana Mitrata? From the series entitled The Bi-Tendential Value of Being & The Greater Mandala given by Jnanavaca and Subhadramati at the London Buddhist Centre, 2019.
