Dhammarati on Sabbatical, Solitary Retreat, and the International CouncilOn Wed, 23 March, 2016 - 20:44
Dhammarati - in conversation here with Dhammamegha - is one of the most experienced members of the Triratna College of Public Preceptors having chaired it for over ten years. Here he talks about his long sabbatical after leaving that job - a rich, deep time that encompassed post-Impressionist galleries in New York and lengthy solitary retreats in California and in Wales.
We hear about his personal study and his practical exploration of the Triratna system of practice and meditation, especially via anapanasati and the mindfulness of breathing. Inspiring to hear about such a strong deepening into a Buddhist life, and about Dhammarati’s gratitude for the people and conditions that support him to dedicate his work to the future of a Buddhist community via the work of the International Council.
