This Dharmabyte podcast, ‘Vision’ and ‘View’, is an excerpt from A Vision of Human Existence given by Sangharakshita in 1976.

In Sanskrit or Pali, there’s no word that corresponds with the word ‘philosophy.’ There is one word that is sometimes translated as philosophy, the word darshana, which means ‘to see, a sight, a view, a vision.’

Dharsana represents direct experience, not something mediated by concepts. In Buddhism, the term is ‘drsti’ - which means a sight, a view, a perspective.

This talk is part of the series Buddhism for Today and Tomorrow.
