Imagining the Buddha - by Maitreyabandhu. In this talk Maitreyabandhu explores his responses to Aloka’s remarkable new Buddha Rupa in the Padmaloka shrine room. You can see a glimpse of the image itself here.
In his fifth in a series of talks on the theme of Imagination Subhuti comes to the Buddha and how we relate to him. In what is possibly the most interesting material of the series he explores what it would mean to engage with the Buddha from our cultural context; while taking great inspiration from the Buddhist cultures of the East - asking; ‘what does the Buddha look like for me?’
