Padmasagara explores the glimpses of the Buddha’s liberating vision found in the Ariyapariyesana sutta, focussing on the Buddha’s description of Reality in terms of pratitya samutpada (conditionality) and his response to Brahma Sahampati’s request to teach the Dhamma. The talk also explores how we can begin to realise this vision for ourselves by responding to the Buddha’s exhortation: ‘let those who have ears release their faith’.
Paramabandhu explores in great breadth and depth the profound and central teaching of the Buddha: conditionality.
Drawing especially on incidents from the lives of the Buddha and his disciples in the Pali Canon, he highlights seven points that we should be particularly aware of when looking to understand this important teaching.
Talk given in the Dublin Buddhist Centre on Friday 17th May 2018.
