Dharmabyte: Why does the Dharma Exist?

Posted by Sadayasihi to Free Buddhist Audio on Fri, 27 Jul, 2018 - 12:26

This FBA Dharmabyte is another excerpt from a 1968 talk by Sangharakshita called ‘Why does the Dharma exist?’. Dharma is the experience of reality, and also the expression of that experience in the form of the Buddha’s teaching, especially the law of conditionality. It is the raft that carries you to Enlightenment, the further shore; it is whatever helps you to develop spiritually.

Excerpted from the talk entitled ‘The Meaning of the Dharma‘ given in 1968 as part...

Dharmabyte: It's Not Fair!

Posted by Sadayasihi to Free Buddhist Audio on Wed, 11 Apr, 2018 - 17:07
