Part 10 in the ‘Faces of Enlightenment’ Sangha night series at Sheffield Buddhist Centre. Padmasagara gives a talk on the Buddha Amitabha, Avalokitesvara and the Bodhisattva vow. He shares three stories from Buddhist tradition, each of them drawing out the boundless radiant love of Amitabha and the inconceivable nature of true compassion.
Points for reflection and discussion:
How do you relate to the statement that ‘there is no such thing as a private, personal Enlightenment’?
Do you foresee some kind of failure as being inevitable in the spiritual life?
What does it actually mean to act with compassion?
What are the altruistic dimensions in your Going for Refuge?
