FBA Podcast: The Bodhisattva's Reply

By Rijupatha on Sat, 5 Jul, 2014 - 18:05We are pleased to share the three keynote talks from last month’s International Retreat. Our first FBA Podcast in the series is “The Bodhisattvas Reply”. Inspired by a poem from Sangharakshita entitled The Bodhisattvas Reply, Vajragupta outlines ways in which Western religious groups have historically approached engagement with social issues. Vajragupta suggests three ways in which we can work together to transform ourselves and so create a better world.
