In today’s FBA Dharmabyte, “The Dakini, the ‘Lady of Space,’” Sangharakshita evokes the image of space, the sky, infinite, deep blue, and perfectly pure and introduces us to the Dakini, a strong symbol of freedom.

A Dharma jewel within a Dharma jewel: from the talk “The Taste of Freedom” given in 1979. Just as the mighty ocean has but one taste, the taste of salt, even so the Dharma-vinaya (Buddhism) has but one taste, the taste of Freedom. (from ‘The Udana’). This brilliant and rousing tour-de-force on transcendental freedom is one of Sangharakshita’s best-loved lectures.
