Dharmabyte: Indra's Net and Social ActionOn Mon, 5 August, 2019 - 14:00
The development of the individual is fundamental in transforming the world but at the same time it is important to recognize that external conditions can help or hinder us in our development. Vimalavajri talks of her personal involvement in the spheres of politics, feminism and Buddhism.
Using Indra’s net as a classic Buddhist image of interconnectedness, the talk explores what the dharma might have to say about social or political action, and asks what helps when we feel overwhelmed or stuck in ill-will. If we really see Indra’s net, we will connect more deeply with life at all levels and our action will be more joyful and wholehearted.
