Suryagupta and Subhuti in Conversation

By akasajoti on Thu, 30 Apr, 2020 - 23:02

On Sunday 19th, Suryagupta hosted a conversation with Subhuti on ‘Life, Death and Dying’ for the London Buddhist Centre, themes that are very much with us right now. 

It was an insightful and meaningful conversation, and Subhuti invited us to work as positively as we can with the challenges that the Coronavirus pandemic brings - so we hope the reflections in the interview give you inspiration to take your practice deeper.
