To mark the great festival of Buddha Day (Wesak), when we celebrate the Enlightenment and its opening up of the path that leads to the end of suffering, here’s a wonderful mythologically minded conversation with Sthanashraddha, self-confessed ritualist and all-round lover of beauty and of the Dharma as an aesthetic choice in itself.
Sthanashraddha’s considerable elegance of being and of mind comes through beautifully as we hear his magical tale of a dawn adventure to meet the goddess of the Malvern springs...
At our Buddha Day celebrations Dayalocana, Amala and Vidhuma gave great short talks (and answered questions!) on their relationship to the Buddha’s teaching and the ideal of Enlightenment.
Normally we’d upload these to Free Buddhist Audio but there were some recording glitches during Dayalocana’s and Amala’s talks, so we thought we’d post them all together here as part of the celebrations of Buddha Day around Triratna. They’re definitely listenable, just a bit grungy in parts!
