Dharmabyte: Maturing The Heart

By Zac on Thu, 17 Nov, 2022 - 06:00

In a sutta from the Udana, Meghiya overestimates his spiritual development and sees the goal in terms of his own individual, personal development. Vadanya shares some reflections on the Meghiya Sutta on the theme of learning about yourself in solitude as well as in relationship to others in the Sangha.

From the talk Meghiya and The Path - Beyond Individualism given at Sheffield Buddhist Centre, 2007.

On 14th October 1956 Ambedkar converted to Buddhism. He took the refuges and precepts himself,...
