Sahajatara - Apparell'd In Celestial Light

By Candradasa on Sat, 29 Aug, 2015 - 07:34

Be prepared for the unexpected in Sarvananda’s very funny - and by turns wrongfooting - personal exploration of why the Arts are vital to the development of a genuine Buddhist community. Sarvananda discusses as background his attempts to find a synthesis between the Arts and spiritual life, leading to his current work as a successful playwright
