Mokshapriya writes from India to announce the release of his documentary film, ‘Subhuti in India’, aimed particularly a Triratna audience outside India.
“Twice a year Subhuti leaves north Wales, UK, for India. His winter 2014/15 visit lasted 85 days, included 12 retreats and covered over 3,000 miles, from Bhaja in Maharashtra to Bodh Gaya, the place of the Buddha’s Enlightenment.
I asked Subhuti if I could follow him on one of his India tours to record, for the interest of our Order and Movement, how he spends half of each year.
To the sound of lorries delivering food and folding chairs for this weekend’s Order gathering to celebrate Bhante’s 90th birthday, Vidyamala presented the history and evolution of Breathworks, the mindfulness project she founded in 2001 to help people live better with pain and illness. She also talked about “mainstream” mindfulness teaching as Bodhisattva activity in an intensely suffering world.

Over four days of talks they explored beauty and the dharma life; covering themes such as the ecstatic nature of the aesthetic moment, and the relationship of eros and beauty with spiritual death and the bodhicitta.
The talks are available here on Free Buddhist Audio
By Singhamanas on Fri, 31 Oct, 2014 - 12:30What do we really know? Drawing on fresh inspiration from Schopenhauer (Europe’s first Buddhist?), Subhuti presents a brilliantly clear explanation of the great philosopher’s insight, and then takes things further with a radical new vision of the Buddha and his Dharma.
