Maitreyabandhu at Poetry Day Ireland 2018

Posted by Sadayasihi on Wed, 25 Jul, 2018 - 18:06

Maitreyabandhu discusses his childhood, forbidden love, his path to writing poetry and what Buddhism can learn from poetry (and what poetry can learn from Buddhism) in this wide-ranging interview with Jnanadhara, the chair of the Dublin Buddhist Centre. 

He also reads a selection of his poetry - including from a forthcoming book on the painter Paul Cézanne - as part of this special evening held as part of the programme of events during the 2018 Poetry Day Ireland festival.

Recorded at the Dublin Buddhist Centre on 26th April 2018.
