Our FBA Dharmabyte today is titled “A Society Inspired by Bodhicitta” by Sangharakshita. We hear of Queen Vaydevi and the series of sixteen meditations as illustration to create a spiritual community without the use of the ‘power mode’ in interacting with each other. This contrasts strongly with ordinary ‘groups’, where relationships are often based on authority, sometimes the authority of a personal God.

From the talk “Authority and the Individual in the New Society”, 1979.
