Love (compassion and practising for others) and liberation (wisdom and practising for ourselves) are both essential aspects of the Dharma life. With stories of the Buddha, anecdotes from  Maitrisiddhi’s own life, and suggestions around how to respond creatively to the planet’s ecological crisis.

From the talk Love, Liberation and the Bodhisattva Ideal given on a weekend retreat for local sangha members in the broader community at Taraloka Retreat Centre, 2019.

Dharmabyte: Choosing Our Intentions

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 14 Dec, 2020 - 07:00

Is kindness possible here? How does clarity help us open up to love? Maitrisiddhi explores the active and receptive aspects of the Metta Bhavana as expressed through the symbolism of Akshobhya, the Buddha of the East.

From the talk entitled Metta and Akshobhya’s Mirrorlike Wisdom, the first of two talks given on “Living in the Mandala”; a retreat on the Brahma Viharas at Taraloka Retreat Centre, 2018.
