Dharmabyte: Broken Images

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 28 May, 2018 - 17:07

This Dharmabyte podcast is from Sangharakshita, entitled: Broken Images, an excerpt from the talk The Journey to Il Convento.

The journey symbolises a pilgrimage through the ruins and broken images of Christian civilisation and culture, progressing through a world of archetypal forms, and potentially taking us to the very threshold of Enlightenment.

N.B. A few words missing. Talk given in 1984.
