Dharmabyte: Knowing Our PatternsOn Mon, 10 June, 2019 - 11:56
Today’s FBA Dharmabyte is Knowing Our Patterns by Karunavapi.
We live by patterns, mostly unconsciously. Using personal reflections, poetry and imagery of the Five Buddha Mandala, Karunavapi talks of mandalas as patterns of the unenlightened and enlightened mind. ‘Personal mandalas’ as the patterning of our own, unenlightened minds and the Five Buddha Mandala as the pattern of the Buddha’s enlightened mind. To appreciate the qualities of the Buddha, we can see them like light through a prism splitting into the colours of the five Buddhas of the Mandala.
