Subhuti - Revering and Relying on the Sangha

By Candradasa on Tue, 26 Feb, 2013 - 03:45
A great talk by Subhuti to get the first full day of the Triratna Order Convention for 2013 off to a deeply engaging start. Looking at the Garava Sutta in its earlier and later versions, and drawing inspiration from the occasion and our setting so close to the Vajrasana (the Buddha’s ‘Seat of Enlightenment’), Subhuti draws out a distinctive difference that opens into a world of significance for our Buddhist Order and the wider Triratna Community.
