Our FBA Dharmabyte today is called “The Buddha as Transcendental Guest” from the talk “The Symbolism of Offerings and Self-Sacrifice” by Sangharakshita. In this lecture we are shown how the symbolism of ritual offerings originated in the Hinayana and Mahayana, and later flowered with the Tantric offerings, particularly the offering of the Mandala.

Part of the series “Creative Symbols of the Tantric Path to Enlightenment”, given in 1971.
