The imagination is the faculty by which we can liberate ourselves from self-preoccupation and increasingly identify and empathise with our spiritual friends, but this is easier said than done. In the third talk of the series, Padmasagara explores the obstacles that prevent us seeing people as people and suggests ways in which they can be overcome. Replete with quotes, stories and images from the Pali Canon, the Mahayana Sutras and Sangharakshita's memoirs and lectures, this is a rich, insightful and challenging talk.
