A deep-dive of a conversation between Abhaya and Satyalila, framing the practice of the Dharma as a path towards beauty, letting go, and liberation of the heart and mind. 

Abhaya speaks frankly about the very early days of the FWBO (now Triratna) and how his understanding of Urgyen Sangharakshita’s systematic approach has evolved alongside his personal connection to his teacher and friend. We also hear how his early inspiration around the Tibetan text translated as ‘Self Liberation Through Seeing with Naked Awareness’ has resonated through his life, and led him to a deeper engagement in old age with the practice and appreciation of visual art as a way into profound connection with others and with the heart of what matters.

Recorded in 2017 on the occasion of Abhaya’s 80th birthday.
