During the most recent Women’s Sangha Morning at Ipswich Buddhist Centre, I gave a short personal presentation on my connection with Prajnaparamita which I recorded on my tablet and uploaded to Soundcloud - it’s just a bit of a ramble around the symbology, a bit about the history, and how I came to meet Prajnaparamita.

Afterwards, we split into groups and we looked at the three questions that are featured at the end of the slide deck:

  1. What does the perfection of wisdom look like to you?  Is it achievable?
  2. What is the significance of Prajnaparamita’s form being millions of tiny Buddhas?
  3. How do you personally access wisdom?  Study? Nature? Aesthetics? Reflection? …

The slides are online here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/pzkdp9m6ym8yt4d/Meeting%20Prajnaparamita.pdf

It was a really good day in the series of Women’s Sangha Mornings where women are speaking about their personal experiences with Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.
