This FBA Dharmabyte is entitled ‘What happens when we stop and listen?’ from the talk ‘The Sound of Reality’ by Padmavajra.
This richly rewarding talk explores the place and function of sound in Buddhist practice and history, as well as within Padmavajra’s own spiritual life.
A wide-ranging cultural journey is made from John Coltrane to Sufi Qawwali, from mantra to Zen poetry, taking in Andre Gide, Renaissance Neoplatonism and the ancient Pali Verses en route. Not to be missed!
Talk given at Padmaloka Retreat Centre, 2004
