Parami's opening talk for the 2015 Urban RetreatOn Sat, 21 November, 2015 - 17:04
Parami gives the introductory talk for the 2015 Triratna International Urban Retreat live in Adelaide, Australia. Her theme - and the theme of the whole retreat - is ‘Living in the Greater Mandala’, and she brings this alive in the most human, poetic, and inspired of ways.
Her range is broad as she evokes the mandala itself, and the profound, playful path of the Bodhisattva. Calling forth Rumi and Hafiz, the great Buddhist Perfection of Wisdom texts, Keats, Yeats, Robert Hass, and Kenneth White, she illustrates what it looks and feels like to live dedicated to the wellbeing of all as the most natural thing in the world.
Parami’s great experience shines through in this talk - a terrific encouragement to anyone thinking of undertaking the Urban Retreat and integrating this perspective of joy into the challenge of everyday life…
Recorded in Adelaide, Australia, October 2015.
