Dharmabyte: The Dharma Door of Non-duality

By Sadayasihi on Thu, 19 Sep, 2019 - 14:00

The nature of ignorance and the nature of wisdom are the same. How do the Bodhisattvas enter the Dharma door of non-duality? Sangharakshita explains some of the dualities listed in the Vimalakirti Nirdesha Sutra, gives some examples of his own (with tips on how to transcend them), and concludes with Vimalakirti’s ‘thunder-like silence’.

From the talk entitled The Way of Non-Duality part of the series The Inconceivable Emancipation - Themes from the Vimalakirti Nirdesha, given in 1979.

Five Hundred Parasols

By viriyalila on Mon, 26 Aug, 2013 - 14:38
