This year Prajnaketu, Triratna’s Young Buddhist Co-ordinator, gave the keynote talk on the Big One on the theme of ’Seek truth, release life’. In it he explores the Buddha’s Noble Quest and how we might follow his example by using the metaphor of leaving the palace so that we can go beyond into a truly ‘religious’ life. Here is Prajnaketu kicking his talk off - the full talk will follow soon!
Prajnaketu talks to Mike and Kusaladevi about their experiences of leading a Karuna appeal, the support they give to participants, and what the ‘ideal fundraiser’ looks like. Also there’s some info on how to apply to do an appeal and what to expect. Check out www.appeals.karuna.org for more!
Vajragupta and Prajnaketu in conversation on Karuna appeals as a unique context for Dharma practice - sitting in the gap, getting immediate feedback door-to-door, moving towards difficulties, getting ourselves out of the way to make something beyond us possible…
