We start our podcast review with The Power of Empathy by Vajrasara. In this beautiful talk Vajrasara explores metta (loving kindness), the subtle art of listening, and Kuan Yin, the mysterious white lady of Compassion. One of a series of talks on the theme of ‘A Force for Good in the World’, given in the Dharma Parlour at the 2010 Buddhafield Festival in Somerset, UK

Then we give you two short Dharmabytes, little gems of Dharma hand selected from our vast audio library…

Firstly, into the Diamond Sutra we go as Padmavajra speaks on Gratitude and Receptivity. From the talk “The Diamond Sutra: Taking Mind to it’s Limits – 2″ of the fascinating and comprehensive series on “The Diamond Sutra” by Padmavajra given at Padmaloka Retreat Centre, 2004.

And then, we offer a morsel from our teacher and founder, Sangharakshita titled: Appreciating Silence from the talk: “No Dependence on Words and Letters” by Sangharakshita, 1965. One of our earliest recordings in the FBA archive!
