With his customary dry wit and sharp eye Abhaya leads us on the crazy paving path through the Diamond Sutra - a text guaranteed to turn your world upside-down. Some very funny parts to this talk - and some excellent evocations of rigorous Dharma practice as part of the everyday business of life.

In this excerpt we hear readings from the sutra about how merit is not enough for insight to arise. From the talk entitled The Diamond Sutra given at the Triratna (Western Buddhist Order) National Order Weekend 2003.
