Dharmabyte: Why does the Dharma Exist?

By Sadayasihi on Fri, 27 Jul, 2018 - 12:26

This FBA Dharmabyte is another excerpt from a 1968 talk by Sangharakshita called ‘Why does the Dharma exist?’. Dharma is the experience of reality, and also the expression of that experience in the form of the Buddha’s teaching, especially the law of conditionality.

Three Jewels Logo

Satyadarshin  re-prepared the three jewels ‘logo’ that has been in circulation for years. No one seemed to know what had happened to the original artwork. The new artwork is available in two formats, JPG and PDF

Because the newly created artwork is a vector drawing it can be resized and re-purposed to almost any size and format. So if you want a specialised variation on the theme, please ask.
