Dharmabyte: The Importance Of Hopes + Dreams

By Zac on Mon, 16 May, 2022 - 06:00

After telling the story of Mara’s assault on the Buddha, Lokeshvara looks at it from a modern perspective and with reference to the System of Meditation.

Dharmabyte: What Is Deeply True

By Zac on Mon, 9 May, 2022 - 06:00

When the Buddha finally sat down under the Bodhi tree and saw deeply into the nature of things, what had brought him to that point? And what happened next? Vishvapani focusses in on the Buddha’s experience after Enlightenment, bringing his nuanced, perceptive reading to the words the Buddha himself is said to have employed in order to best evoke his experiences as he struggled to give voice to them.
