This FBA Dharmabyte is called ‘Enlightenment Is Possible’ by Saddhanandi from the talk Reflecting On the Life of the Buddha.

This is the first of four talks exploring Vasubandhu’s Four Factors. In his treatise Generating Bodhi Resolve, Vasubandhu describes them as able to generate the resolve to cultivate and accumulate the bases for the Arising of the Bodhicitta. You can find out more about them in Sangharakshita’s books The Meaning of Conversion in Buddhism and The Bodhisattva Ideal.

Saddhanandi gave this talk on a meditation retreat for women who have asked for ordination. The complete set of talks were given at Taraloka in February, 2010 and each one finishes with a led reflection on the theme.
