Dharmabyte: Commitment is Primary, Lifestyle is Secondary

By Rijupatha on Thu, 1 Oct, 2015 - 11:00

Sangharakshita speaks to one of the central emphases of the Triratna Buddhist Community in today’s FBA Dharmabyte podcast, expanding on the meaning of the phrase “Commitment is Primary, Lifestyle is Secondary”. Excerpted from the talk “Twenty Years on the Middle Way”, he explores our tradition’s principle of an Order that places its weight on genuine Going for Refuge rather than the conditions a person was born into or lifestyle.
