As the mud deepened, so did our investigation of the topic of compassion in action in the world, through workshops, study groups and talks. And then the sun finally arrived.

Before each day’s main talk Nandavajra’s been giving out practical notices and then there’s been a short presentation related to social action: on Saturday we heard from four women on a Karuna fundraising appeal; on Sunday Danasamudra talked about Dr Ambedkar’s Dhamma Revolution in India and the continuing oppression of India’s Dalit people today.

Yesterday’s main talk came from Vajragupta, entitled “The Bodhisattva’s Reply”. In case you didn’t see the earlier post, you can hear it here: listen to Vajragupta’s talk.

Clear Vision is videoing all the talks and will make these available online as soon after the retreat as possible.
