Ok, time to tidy up the rest of the rich Dharma material from India and the Order Convention…

To start us off, here is a strong, beautiful talk by Parami from the final day, bringing us back to the task in hand as members of an Order and as Buddhists: engaging with breaking the fetters and weakening the hold that self-clinging exerts upon our minds and our ways of seeing things.

Parami brings alive the possibilities in notions about how collective practice manifests (Order chapters, the Bodhisattva Ideal at ordination, ‘sanghakaya’) but grounds the whole thing movingly in her evident love of the Order and her inspiration at being gathered with so many sisters and brothers under one sky.

Talk given at Bodh Gaya, International Order Convention, February, 2013.
