Giving the Gift of the Dharma

Tue, 10 Sep, 2019 - 16:01

Dharmapriya is a Triratna Order member currently living in Berlin. He’s involved with a variety of projects for the movement and is currently concentrating on organising and editing translations.

Forty years ago, when Dharmapriya was still a mitra, he recognised Sangharakshita as a ‘spiritual genius’ and appreciated that his writing was ‘a treasure to be guarded and used’. Over the years, as Sangharakshita’s works were published, Dharmapriya bought them all.

Dharmapriya was delighted when The Complete Works was released, but he hesitated about subscribing;...

'Abandon self; accept reality.' - Interview with author David Brazier

Mon, 11 Mar, 2019 - 16:24

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing respected Buddhist teacher and author, David Brazier, about his upcoming book, The Dark Side of the Mirror: forgetting the self in Dōgen’s Genjō Kōan, due for release on 19 March 2019.

What is the significance of the title: The Dark Side of the Mirror?

The theme of the text Genjō Kōan, written by Dōgen when he returned from China, was the nature of satori (Japanese: spiritual enlightenment). Many people think that enlightenment comes as a result...

There are just three weeks to go before the publication of our latest book, The Dark Side of the Mirror: forgetting the self in Dōgen’s Genjō Kōan, by respected Buddhist teacher and author David Brazier.

Genjō Kōan is the most important chapter in Zen master Dōgen’s principal major work, the Shōbōgenzō. Although Genjō Kōan is familiar to Buddhists both east and west, it is still not well understood. This new translation and commentary draws back the curtain revealing the deeper meaning of the text in language that...
