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.

Imagining the Buddha - by Subhuti

By lokabandhu on Thu, 24 May, 2012 - 13:05
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?’
