In the Footsteps of the Buddha - Seven New Talks by Nagasiddhi

By Free Buddhist Audio on Fri, 28 May, 2021 - 22:04

As a launch series for Free Buddhist Audio on YouTube, a wonderful new set of talks given by Nagasiddhi. We are taken through seven key stages of the Buddha’s mythic quest, from his unsure setting out, through his wrong turnings, his breakthroughs and his decision to share what he had learned with others. A perfect way to celebrate Buddha Day as Nagasiddhi brings his infectious sense of imagination, play and grounded experience to bear on a story...
