Sangharakshita goes to Buddhafield! A first for him, and a first for the fabulous Buddhafield Festival that takes place each year at the height of the English summer. This talk was given in a tent in Devon - and the sounds of this great Dharma celebration are everywhere around as Sangharakshita marks his entry to the ‘Dharma Parlour’ with a rolling set of thoughts and reminiscences and encouragements to practice.
Here we have Akuppa exploring how someone practising the Dharma might respond if they found themselves in ‘Hell and Other Ordinary Places’ - including prison and public buses! One of a series of talks on the theme of ‘A Force for Good in the World’, given in the Dharma Parlour at the 2010 Buddhafield Festival in Somerset, UK.
There are also very worth sharing: Shambala Warrior verses written by Akuppa, 2005.
This year’s Buddhafield Festival was, once again, Triratna’s largest and most popular event of the year. It was their 18th successive Festival and all the more special as next year, for the first time ever, they will be taking a break from the festival. Their 2014 programme is currently being developed but will include a full programme of retreats and a return of the popular ‘Green Earth Awakening’ event held for the first time this year.
