Imagining I was there, I listened to this beautifully led practice before going to sleep last night - this morning I woke up with the mantra still sounding in my being…

Thank you to everyone making this possible. 

Much metta,

A Note About Online Coverage From India

Posted by Centre Team on Wed, 7 Feb, 2018 - 14:44

Hello friends. We hope you’re enjoying the coverage from India. Just a note to say that recordings of talks, podcasts, and other bits of the event that need editing and processing are likely to be delayed for a day or two due to ill health in the online team. We’ll restore normal service as soon as possible! Thanks for your patience.

Reverencing the Buddha At the Place of His Enlightenment by Purna

Posted by Free Buddhist Audio on Wed, 7 Feb, 2018 - 07:36

As his contribution to evoking the “lion’s roar” of the Buddha, Purna talks about myth and the importance of reverence in any spiritual life, regardless of temperament. We are given a faith-centered tour of the seven traditional spots around the Bodhi tree marking different aspects of the Buddha’s Enlightenment experience. And Purna enjoins us to “release faith” by following in the Buddha’s footsteps and dropping our rigid self view…

Recorded at Bodhgaya, India, 2018.
