The team at Adhisthana are really excited to invite you to this online series - Three Myths: Eight Talks. What are the potential values and shortcomings of each of the Three Myths as an approach to insight? How can this help us live a full Dharma life?
Maitreyabandhu and Jnanavaca will be giving this series of talks, from 11th-18th...
What if everyone could see the enormity of their potential and be able to grow into that potential? What if those people then created a community… and that community becomes more and more a force for good in the world?
Buddhism teaches us that it is possible to transcend the notion that I exist as a fixed and separate entity in the world and in doing so release a force of unbounded, unconditional love.
Jnanavaca and Maitreyabandhu, in the weekly Dharma night class at the LBC, offer their reflections on our current predicament. Together, in conversation, they explore some dharmic perspectives on our experience of our lives and the world in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.
On the first anniversary of Urgyen Sangharakshita’s death Jnanavaca gives a compelling and heartfelt talk about how we might view the founder of the Triratna Buddhist Order and community: an extraordinary human but also finite and fallible, a visionary genius in the mould of Blake, and translator of the Dharma, who helped bring the Buddhist tradition alive. Jnanavaca also outlines how he himself views Bhante: a Bodhisattva and a Guru - a ‘Teacher’ with a capital ‘T’.
We will be live streaming Jnanavaca’s talk ‘Seeing Bhante - A Personal Perspective’ on Wednesday 30th October 7.30pm GMT. Jnanavaca reflects on the significance of Sangharakshita’s life, exactly one year after his death.
