Manjughosa Stuti Sadhana Retreat - The Talks By Subhuti

By Centre Team on Fri, 22 Sep, 2017 - 15:17

An outstanding series of talks by Subhuti on the theme of Sadhana during the Manjughosa Stuti Sadhana retreat at Adhisthana in 2017.

Over the course of six talks he articulates the stages we traverse in the practice of sadhana, which correspond to the stages of the system of practice - Reverence, Solidarity, Wise Attention, The Illumined Image, Dwelling in Reality and Dedication.

About 60 Order Members gathered at Adhisthana last week for a retreat on the Manjughosa Stuti Sadhana, spending each day moving through the system of practice and building up the Sadhana. Each afternoon in the Sangharakshita Library, before the image of Manjughosa that presides there, Subhuti gave a talk articulating six different aspects of the unfolding drama of the Sadhana, which correspond to the stages of the system of practice - Reverence, Solidarity, Wise Attention, The Illumined Image, Dwelling in Reality + Dedication.

The Gentle-Voiced One

By akasajoti on Tue, 23 Aug, 2016 - 21:52

Today on the women’s Order convention we have had a full day, listening to the sound of the gentle-voiced one and dwelling in his amber realm. Sanghadevi gave a evocative talk this morning, and led us through the Manjughosa Stuti Sadhana. Then this afternoon amongst other fringe activities and sitting in the sun in the beautiful Adhisthana grounds, we listened to part of the original taped lecture on ‘The System of Meditation’ given by Bhante, which you can also listen to here.
