Become One Person, Become No Person

By Ratnaprabha on Fri, 7 Aug, 2020 - 09:43

North London Buddhist Centre Budcast talk, 11:30, Saturday 8 August.

Nandaraja (pictured) will explain how Perfect Samadhi (meditation, or better, unification of mind) completes the Buddha’s 8-fold Path.

All the previous seven limbs of the Eightfold Path come together, and Perfect Samadhi is both supported by and supports them, integrating them into a holistic system of interconnectedness that dissolves clinging and yields a renunciation of the...
